More logic to little icons

There is no logic in icons in the text editor. If user wants to browse her own files, she would like to click a folder icon. In the new text editor, the foder icon refers to a tree link, that is rarely used, I presume. To browse her own folders she needs to click the globe-icon. If she wants to create a link, she clicks on the chain icon and this is ok since the chain is commonly used to present a link.

After user clicks the globe, she sees list of her own files and folders. If she wants to make a link to a certain file, she needs to click globe again. So in this view the globe stands for a link and there are no chain icons visible. To use the globe for two different actions and not using folder and chain icons in a same way thay are commonly used uses a lot of confusion.

    We have improved the icons over the past few years - using a universal set that are easier to recognise.
