I got a few reports that the preview icon I created was not very user friendly. I just made something that made sense to me, not something that makes sense everyone. So I have made a new one that might be more suitable.

Because the templates are quite dynamic, the icons all need to be solid pixels with a transparent background, in the near future when IE6 finally dies, I will probably upgrade to some png icons with transparency. Attached is what I have come up with, it is simple, but I think effective. Essentially clicking the icon will zoom on the object, or rather, preview it.

While I was there I jumped in and created a new quick icon for Go and Download. Among other adjustments. The ToG is pretty much ready to be released... just waiting for Richard to finish something on the back end of the website. I might release RAWR-Player-1.0.0 and ToG-4.0.2 at the same time. Then release RAWR-Template in a few weeks time, as RAWR-Template will take a lot longer to update.

I was headed that way already, your post was reinforcement for my decision. ;)

I look forward to an updated RAWR template. the go and download button are definitely confusing to some people that visit.
