Icon Update

So not so long ago, one of my fellow wiki editors (Eebit) suggested that we eliminate the “thumbnail” box around the icons, and another (Hemhem) at first agreed, but then thought it looked better with them in.  I could see the dilemma, I think.  With the boxes there’s kind of a break in continuity within the info boxes, but without them the text gets smashed right up against the image too tightly.  I think I’ve found a way to get the best of both worlds.  Through a process of trial an error, I’ve figured out (as best I can tell, anyway) the exact color shade of the background of our info boxes (I got an R/G/B of 139/141/149) and started adding a 3-4 pixel wide “buffer” or “spacer” on the latest icons, so that the text no longer looks like it is smashed up against the picture in the absence of a thumbnail box.  After a considerable experimentation over the last couple of weeks, I think that this works and is the solution, but before I make it my standard practice, I thought I’d ask y’all what you think?
