Hm. Those Icons aren't realy too descriptive. Especailly why was
the very ambigous letter "A" choosen to represent the latin script?
(I remember the use of "L" in earlier character-charts, which is both
more unique to latin and is also the first letter of it's name.
I can't say much to other scrips (except that for hiragana the ひ [hi]
glyph seems to me a better choice), but I suspect that for some there
would be also better choices...
