    For indicating compliance of a WWW page to various standards and recommendations,
    or to support campaigns, usually "88 × 31 Micro Bars" (in the parlance of the
    above-mentioned page) are used. None of the Unicode logos does comply with this
    de-facto standard.

    Personally, I use the UniEncTrans.gif logo alongside with standard 88×31 Bars,
    e. g. in <>:
    Though not standard size, it is not too distracting in a row of 88×31 Bars.

    Indeed, I would prefer a Unicode-encoded logo in standard 88×31 size for my
    WWW pages. Any artists to volunteer?

    Best wishes,
