Hi John,

I think most of these icons are in /usr/share/icons/gnome.  A few
different sizes are available so you can use larger, more easily
readable versions in your docs.  For instance:

$ cd /usr/share/icons/gnome
$ find -type f | grep send
./24x24/stock/generic/stock_send-fax.png
./24x24/stock/net/stock_mail-send.png
./24x24/stock/net/stock_mail-send-receive.png
./16x16/stock/generic/stock_send-fax.png
./16x16/stock/net/stock_mail-send.png
./16x16/stock/net/stock_mail-send-receive.png
./32x32/stock/net/stock_mail-send.png
./32x32/stock/net/stock_mail-send-receive.png
./48x48/stock/net/stock_mail-send.png
./48x48/stock/net/stock_mail-send-receive.png

Most GTK and GNOME applications draw their icons from a common pool to
prevent each application from having to package its own, and to promote
common theming.
