	Unfortunately, it _is_ ugly. But it is behind the scenes, for

	Umm, yes, but I think that duplicating the icon files (about
 32K) into every document converted is almost as bad as the admittedly
 ugly hack. 

	Unless there are better solutions that show up, or there are
 serious objections to the symlinks proposed, I will package up
 LaTeX2HTML and close the lone bug report about icon file locations
 against  LaTeX2HTML.
