the problem with these images is that they also specify an empty alt tag which has traditionally meant to ignore the image.

James, what do you think? if there's a title on the image and alt is empty should we expose these images again

<img src="copy.jpg" title="Create a Copy of a Group" alt="" style="border:0" height="22" width="22">
