The website uses multiple MIT-licensed (or similar licenses) 'code':
- Several SVG icons from Wikimedia commons (Icon 1, Icon 2, Icon 3).
- Code I copied and significantly modified from an Observable Notebook which is ISC licensed.
- The d3.js library (BSD 3-Clause) (which I don't think is relevant, but I'm listing it anyway).
After a lot of research, I came to the conclusion that I need to have the following text:

- The About Page (and I should create one).
- Any existing documentation.
- README ?
- And most importantly in a comment at the beginning of the .html and .js files (I have only one for each)
My questions are:
- Which parts of the text are necessary and what can be discarded?
- Am I forgetting something that needs to be added?
- Questions (1) and (2) again regarding the places to put the text in.
- General remarks and suggestions are also more than welcome :)
I copied the permission notice only once for each license type (once for MIT and once for ISC).
I copied the copyright notice only once for each author (Icon 2 and Icon 3 are both by "OOjs UI Team and other contributors", so I wrote
Copyright (c) 2011–2017 OOjs UI Team and other contributorsonly once)
Thanks in advance :)
