    They're called 'favicons' and you can create them in any graphics app, i.e. Fireworks, Photoshop, etc.

    Do a search on Google.com to get the specifics required like maximum size, etc.

    Then it's just a 'link' in the HEAD section of your HTML doent - no big deal.

    Where exactly do you put it. Do you make it a img src or a href. It keeps on showing up at the top of the page instead of the address bar. I have saved it as a ICO file also.
    Thank you for your help

    <link rel="icon" href="http://www.mysite3/Plain Fusion Ball31.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.mysite3/Plain Fusion Ball31.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    I have that in the head and I have uploaded the .ico file to the server yet it still is not working.
    Thanks for your help.

    <head>
    <link rel="icon" href="http://www.dolbeyco.com/mysite2/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.dolbeyco.com/mysite2/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    </head>

    Thats what I have and it is still not working. I changed the name of the icon to favicon.ico and I also put the re-named icon in the server so it has its own page also.
    Thanks for your help

    Other browsers (Moz, NN6+, Konqueror, Safari, Opera) show it any time
    they visit.

    Actually, it is a buggy implementation by IE. If you visit the page
    and see the IE icon in the address bar, you can often get it to
    display by clicking on the icon and dragging it an inch or so to the
    right and releasing it.
