I think I have to *see* those "button-like" icons in a real toolbar to 
decide if I like the style. The PNGs saved on my desktop do not look 
good on a colored background, but not that bad on a light gray one 
opened with eog.

I think the shape for striketrough would be better with the dash on the 
same plane as the letter face, not on top of it (attached). Probably you 
can do it better with extra details (show the top of the dash).

And I attached a preview with all the icons grouped, I find it much 
better for previewing.
