+1 for both those changes. :)

The current delete icon is part of the `annotator-glyph-sprite.png` file:

CSS selecting the delete icon from the sprite sheet is here:

You could either replace the "X" variations in the image or define and
override to a custom image for that class. Doing it in the sprite sheet (or
a new sprite sheet), means you'd benefit from the current setup of loading
all the glyph icons at once--which is handy. :)

Fabulous! It'd be great to get more Annotator folks at IndieWebCamp. :)
Randall and I are both flying back Friday night and going to miss
LibrePlanet, sadly. It looks like a great conference, though, and one I
hope to attend in the future.

I'll ping Randall about this one, and see if he has a preference. Once
we've got a time that works for the three of us, we'll get it set, space
found, and start promoting pronto! :)

Thanks again, Shauna!
