    NEW YORK The Transportation Department has ordered Microsoft Corp. to remove its butterfly decals from the city's streets and other public property, a published report said Friday.

    ''We intend to hold your firm directly responsible for this illegal, irresponsible and dangerous defacing of public property,'' Cesar Fernandez, the Transportation Department's assistant counsel, said in a letter sent to Microsoft.

    Fernandez said that failure to comply with the order could lead to legal proceedings, including a possible request for monetary damages, The New York Times reported.

    On Thursday, the decals appeared on sidewalks and doorways, traffic signals and stop lights as part of an advertising campaign for the company's MSN 8 Internet service.

    Microsoft received a single summons with a $50 penalty.

    A company spokeswoman said that Microsoft had received a permit to place the blue, green, orange and yellow butterflies, measuring 12 to 20 inches in width, on city property.
