Thanks for the information. I did not know that SVG was going to be used everywhere. Then it looks like I good idea to make both bitmap and SVG versions. Do you have any idea of how to handle this?

I have seen there is an SVG plugin for Gimp. However I do not know about the internal format for Gimp, if that is a bitmap format and/or a vector format. If Gimp can make both SVG files, png and w32 ico format files from the same picture then we can solve this easily I guess. But that depends on how well Gimp can handle this. There may of course also be other options. Do you know anything about this?
