    Set Icon

    Hi everyone.

    I just finished drawing my company's icon but I don't know how to have it appear in the favorites, when people set my web site in their favorites.
    Can anyone help?

    Thanks
    Your friend Bing

    Hi Bing

    I know how to do it for IE5.0 browsers onwards, anyone using NS or Mozilla etc will not be able to see the icon, but it won't cause problems. The tutorial I learn't it from is here:

    There must be ways of adding it to NS (possibly 6.0 upwards), I'll dig through my references and see, but I'm sure there's a whizz out there who knows...wheres pyro when you need them

    Cheers

    Basically you create an *.ico file 16x16 pixels in dimension with 4-bit colour, and add the following:
    Code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.yoursite.com/youricon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    If you are using a technically superior browser like Mozilla you also have the option of using:
    Code:
    <link rel="icon" href="http://www.yoursite.com/youricon.png" type="image/png">
    Micro$oft has bugs regarding displaying the icon when cache is cleared.
