I am a technical communication graduate student. I am required to give
a presentation on technology (3 hrs) to my classmates. I am wondering
if anyone knows where I can find information on international icons. I
would like to show them several icons in my presentation and show that
they mean something else in other countries (a mailbox on our pages
looks like a coffin to many others, because they don't have mailboxes
like ours). Any information would be greatly appreciated.
