Whatever solution (I'm sure you'll do a great work) should maintain a
the line width (those sup asterisks broke vertical adjustment) and the
left alignment.

Left or right... I prefer left if the alignment of the projects names
is maintained, but it's just my opinion!

About the icon, I'm afraid our (old no logo will not scale down so
well without some simplification but, as I said, I'm not a designer
and the only simplification I can discuss is the Douglas-Peuker or the
Visvalingam ones for geographic features :P
