Draft: Replace Font Awesome with inline SVG icons

me5na7qbjqbrp requested to merge svg_icons into main

Font Awesome 4 adds 106kB of dependencies on each page and require to query multiple assets. It also sometimes causes icons to appear after page loading. Font Awesome 4 is deprecated and replaced by version 5 which is not packaged in every GNU/Linux distributions.

This commit replaces icons with inline SVG which does not require external assets, does not require an additionnal dependency and is widely supported by modern browsers. It makes the page loading faster and enables us to no longer require fonts-font-awesome Debian package.
