However, stand by the school of thought that a logo should really be 
able to stand on its own grounds as a shape, indecent of language 
specific text.  The logo should be able to be recognizable with no 
dependency on text.  Examples of this include the Apple logo, the 
Windows logo, and the Linux penguin.  Standardized, stylized text can 
be used as an addition to the logo, but should not be included into the 
logo itself.
