    How to get icons to show as in Phoenix

    I just started using Phoenix as my main browser, and really enjoyed the icons that show up next to the URL. How can I get them to show up on the web pages I design? I remember reading about putting a file in the root directory, but am unsure of the parameters. Is it an ico file?

    Thanks,
    Vince

    Overview; if you create an *.ico file 16x16 pixels in dimension with 4-bit colour, and add the following:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.yoursite.com/youricon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

    If you are using a browser like Pheonix you also have the option of using:

    <link rel="icon" href="http://www.yoursite.com/youricon.png" type="image/png">

    Micro$oft has bugs regarding displaying the *.ico icon when cache is cleared.

    i'd say that - in addition to the above - call it "favicon.ico", as - as far as i know - IE checks for the presence of a file of that name in the root of your site anyway...so you might as well have it there...

    Thanks Redux and xhtmlcoder,

    Based on what you have told me, I have learned a lot. I downloaded the Icon Forge sw from favicon.com and have started to create one.

    Thanks again for the help
    Vince
