hello,
I am viewing this not through internet explorer but through bt yahoo broadband browser. In the top left hand corner next to where you enter the www etc stuff there is a small icon of a plane in flyaway grey colour. What i am asking is hoh do you get that there? I would like on on my site
Thankyou

you need to make an icon called...favicon.ico simply, make a 22x22 (ithink) bmp, upload it to your server and rename it to .ico

next in the head,place this code:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

the reason it is called favicon rather than anything else is that older version of IE pick it up automatically Wink

they show up by default in firefox too.

I believe 16x16 is the dimension and the code is:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
