Creating a Favicon (Favorite Icon) for a Web Page
You can create and display your own
favicon for your web page.
If you're using Internet Explorer 5 or above, you've probably noticed that
some web sites you've placed within your "Favorite Places" have an icon beside
them. You can easily create a custom icon for your web site as well. This
will enable your visitors to see your icon in their "Favorite Places."
It's very simple. All you'll need to do is create an icon file called,
favicon.ico and place it on your server where you store your HTML
Your first step will be to download an icon creation program. You can find
a good shareware program called "Icon Easel"
Once you've become acquainted with the program, you'll need to create an
icon with the following specifications:
Your icon must be size
Your icon can be up
to 256 colors
Once you've created your icon, save it as favicon.ico and upload it
to your server.
