    The Little Apple Logo in the URL address bar
    I have a website I'm trying to finally get up and finish. And just a little touch I was curious about was, I see lots of sites having a tiny picture just before the http:// in the address bar, much like this site does.

    How does one do this?

    Thanks

    It's called a favicon.

    Here is one link:

    http://www.webdevelopersjournal.com/...s/favicon.html

    And if you do a search on Google for 'favicon' you'll find a lot of sites that will tell you how to do it.

    Cheers!

    The easiest way to do this is to create a 16x16 pixel icon in Graphic Converter . It must have only 16 colours in it.

    Then go to 'save' and save it as a "Windows Icon", which will give it the extension '.ico'

    Call the file 'favicon.ico' and save it in the rott level of your hosting. That's it!

    Note: there are other ways to do this, that was the simplest I believe.
