I've been using icons for these categories for most of my
working life, but most of my work has been with things that
can seriously damage product, injure or kill if instructions
aren't followed correctly. Also, be aware that in various
markets worldwide there are certain icons that are
*required* if you invoke words like "caution," or "warning,"
and if your documents are audited and found to be lacking
your products could be locked out of entire countries.

I have mixed feelings about the icon issue. While they tend to make help differentiate important information from the body text, they're also sometimes considered a little juvenile. Since my audience is composed of sys admins (Unix, Linux, Win) I want to avoid having the doc immediately round-filed for falling into the "for dummies" category.
