For anyone who doesn't want to wade through my long-winded reply to
Joann's other message bout itemtypes and ccodes, here's the part about
icons in search results:

Now that ccode and itemtype are stored at the item level rather than
the biblio (title) level there can be any number of ccodes and
itemtypes attached to one bibliographic record. Even if this isn't the
case for your library, the very possibility makes it difficult to
imagine a system for displaying them accurately in OPAC search
results. Would you have to display an icon for every kind of
itemtype/ccode which were attached to each record?

I (and my patrons) want pretty icons in our search results too. I just
don' t know how we could make it happen with a solution that is
broadly applicable.
