Ah, okay. I was scared there for a bit :-)

Well, I can't help on the font issues (I have contacted Jesse Andrews
and some of the others who worked on the project after me to see if they
can point me to where they came from... most likely external
contributors)... however, for the images I'd be more than happy to find
or make replacements to any ones which are really questionable.

Specifically replacing the FWS ones will be very easy (the FWS website
is easily navigable and explicitly says which images are in the public
domain and which are not).

That being said, the FWS site also says this:
        Most of the images on our Web pages are in the "public
        domain" (which means they have no copyright restrictions). If an
        image on our Web site is not restricted and does not say it is
        copyrighted, then you can assume it is in the public domain.
If only we could search on their site for all the images that are /not/
in the public domain then we could verify that these images are fine. As
far as I can tell, the vast majority of images on their site are in the
public domain.
