what sort of quasi-religious purism prevents you using Gimp? or any icon

hehe..... But alas, it's everywhere in the Links as undefined backgound. And 
nobody seems to find where was it hardwired in the first place. Actually, 
it's very weird: you can change the color of your scrolling slider, but not 
that Scheissensoldatengrau. Nobody cares, either.

sehr gut! But I like my Russischkaliforniensilikonentaldeutsch better: it 
produces such Ueberworten nobody can read.

Yet Apple owns most eye-pleasing grey backgrounds in the GUI industry.

muss sein -1, oder -10, Ich meine. LOL! Aber es ist fuer "....dunkleschwarz", 
und nicht for "dark black" which may stay at =0, OK.

got that. But my "Ueberferboten" sounds better.

That was a natural Links-promotional joke: if Links can render a page, 
anything else can, too, it's obvious.

eh-eh-eh! why and where is that? what exactly makes elinks reproduce better 
text, tell me? Except for choice of more or less ugly monospace? Even on a 
letter's outline border level, I don't see any advantages.

that's boring obvious. You just use "LATIN LETTER ALVEOLAR CLICK" (absolutely 
officially un-verboten Unicode character) on your page coupla times, and no 
other browser can render it right but Links.

alright..... so you don't know anything about a smaller Links icon on a window 
title, nicht wahr?

Maybe you could be of better luck searching and finding two outputs in Links 
sources: "003c.png" followed by "002d.png" I need to change these into 
something more decent I cut recently: a (mucho) better "Back" arrow. 
Naturally, I cut also matching "Forward", "Stop", "Reload", and "Home" 
symbols, but these latter would take some major messing with Links sources.
