The site uses Wikifont icons created by Mun May Tee-Galloway.

The iconset has not been updated, but I suggest we continue developing it as an open source project. The font has been forked in https://github.com/Wikidocumentaries/WikiFont.

Let's list missing icons here first!

Context

The icons are used primarily in the header bar of each module. They can be buttons or menus, but the same icon are used in both cases.
