that little icon...

Alrighty, I figured it out. I finally figured out how to put one of those little icons next to the address up in the address bar.

It should look like this now:




If you add me to your favorites, then it should show up in your favorites list as well.



If you would like to add your own icon to your own site, then here is what you need to do:

First: Create your icon, making sure it is 16x16 pixels and has the name favicon.ico

Second: Save your icon on your webserver.

Third: Somewhere between the tags <HEAD> and </HEAD>, you need to place this code:
<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.mydomain.com/favicon.ico">

After that, it should work...


Update: To see the little icon (if it doesn't show up on its own). Watch this video.

    webserver... if you have high speed internet, then you probably have webspace that comes with it.

    Basically it is a place on the internet where you can store images.

    flickr does the same thing.
