I must admit that I never noticed this. As I now know where to look, I
see that the lines in this icon are a bit blurred.
Icon designers spend days to get pixel-perfect icons. Bitmap icons
cannot be scaled.
The question is what size we should design for because right-clicking on
a toolbar offers you 3 different icon sizes.
I remember that one of the Tango designer, Jimmac, bloggeed about how
the scalable (svg) icons were not good, but they could still be a solution.
Most desktops follow the freedesktop icon standards. It seems they
create one folder per size. Could be also a solution.
But anyway, as you identified problematic icons, can you provide a
better one for e.g. the table float icon? LyX will benefit from this.
I have tried, but this list has restrictions that makes it hard posting
the result. See the thread
"Why this list refuses small zip / 7z archives ?" I started a few weeks
ago, it should contain an image of the Tango icons I use (and a link on
rapidshare to download it).
At present, my issue in distributing it is about mixed licenses (LyX
icons are GPL, Tango are public domain, I use part of a gimp icon,
several icons come from the Tango openoffice.org theme, whose license I
haven't found yet, but comes with Mandriva "free" edition).
