Re: [libreoffice-documentation] Icon Set for Guides

Tango is a nice and neutral theme but be aware that some icons for new functions might be missing since we don't have designers for this theme. For your consideration: the majority of users run Windows where the default is Breeze, on Linux it depends on the desktop environment and it's either Breeze or Elementary.
