    I think what he is talking about is what they call a "favicon" which is used to make your site stand out in the users favorites or bookmarks menu. You can find out more about this here. Hope this helps.

    W3schools does it like this:
    Code:
    <link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="images/favicon.ico" />
    Put that in your head tag and change "images/favicon.ico" to the directory where your favicon is. Hope that helps.

    P.S. It has to be an ico file to work.

    I took a look at W3schools and if you add them to your favorites in IE first then it will display that whenever you come back. I don't know how to make it work without adding to your favorites though.
