I wish to point out that international concerns regarding pictogram
representation of things such as checkboxs or boolean buttons are quite valid.
In [Seeing Between the Pixels] by Christine and Thomas Strothotte in section
12.3 [Pictograms and Their Content] (p. 210), they discuss how pictograms/images
are perceived in different cultures. Very interesting read. Perhaps someone else
would have a better reference than mine. The authors Strothotte don't go into
much detail on the issue.
