Hi David,
while the base Tango icon theme only covers the core desktop essentials
defined in the naming spec, there are Tango styled icons available that
include the stuff you're looking for. In particular the OpenOffice.org

Unlike tango icon theme, OOo is distributed under the GNU LGPL, which is
likely to be usable for your website too, though. The only downside is
that it only comes as 16x16 and 24x24px bitmaps.

You can download the set with a cvs client:

cvs co -d :pserver:anoncvs at anoncvs.services.openoffice.org:/cvs -r cws_src680_jimmactango3 ui/ooo_custom_images
