    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...
