Which I have looked at.  I have a background in electronics engineering,
and am familiar with reading highly technical data, but this
documentation takes the cake.

I still say that calling a PNG data file as some *SYSTEM* content to do
with HTTPD is a bizare description for it.  The SELinux contexts are
just plain wierd.  A program or some library for the web server is what
I'd call a *system* file for the HTTP daemon.
