Some of my own.. tips? Which aren't really good since my own icons suck anyway:
- it's mostly a good idea to use very minimal text in icons unless you're good with it. which means one single word.
- it's mostly a good idea to make the text kinda..unify? all in the same case (upper or lower).
- it's always a good idea to set the text on sharp.

It's not fool-proof though, I've seen plenty of good icons which override those rules but it works for me.. 20% of the time which is why I don't use text 8D

There's a nice text tutorial somewhere but I think I ate it. D:

http://community.livejournal.com/good_tutorial/8066.html#cutid1

This is a good tutorial that I find applies to not just icons, but graphic-making in general. ..Nothing to do with text though, which is why I'm so helpful :D
