This document specifies the "icon" URI scheme. Icons have a fundamental role in user interaction with computer operating systems. In a graphical user interface, they may represent a file, folder, application, or device. They live on the desktop, in toolbars, and in menus. Most operating systems provide a standard set of icons that match the look and feel of the system. The "icon" URI scheme lets web page designers leverage these existing platform icons.
