Hi Michael,

Thanks for responding so quickly.

Regarding the icon map, are you referring to CSS sprites (
If so I think that is a good idea. In fact one of my friends who is also a
PMA user suggested this to me the other day.

I don't think it would be that much work to implement an option to change
the icon sizes. They can probably configure this in the config.inc.php file.
Do you plan on creating 4 different sizes?

I am excited to see the new icon set.
