Bug Description

The icons in help menu, which are in most of ubuntu applications have not a tangerine version.

These icons are:
- help (it is already)
- help online
- translate
- about

I have made a Tango/Tangerine version for the online-help and the translate icons.

I would like also to add a link to the tango list where there is a good version of the about icon which could be used:

Nice icons
It would also be possible to use the same icons as in the System/Help menu, ie preferences-desktop-locale and application-web-browser, on the other hand those icons are not intended for that use and could fuck stuff up if other icon themes are used.
I also wonder if those menu items really need icons, do they communicate something that the text itself can't?
I think it would be a good thing to good thing to go over all icons in the desktop after Dapper is released and see if we can make icons being used in a smarter way for Dapper+1, this is not the place to discuss that though, and I'll try to bring the idea up on ubuntu-art list in a couple of weeks.

Really nice icons

How should we name the icons to have them used?
