Hello Bastien, Thank you for pointing this out. It looks like we can replace it with /usr/share/icons/Tango/scalable/emotes/face-crying.svg, which is essentially the same icon by same author, but appears to be (slightly?) better off license-wise - it carries the CC "Public Domain Certification" , although that license appears to be discouraged. For what it's worth, other folks have neglected to look at the metadata in the file itself as well. For example, this page  claims public domain (and the file history claims cc-by-sa-2.5), but downloading the 48x48 file shows that it's the same file that you detected in xhtmlrenderer, carrying the cc-by-nc-sa license. For the Java Team, it also appears that xhtmlrenderer has been renamed to flyingsaucer , so we may want to do a sourceful transition once this bug is addressed.
