    Address bar icons

    Does anyone know how to get the little icons in the start of the address bar?
    Example. http://www.nba.com - has the nba symbol in the address bar. http://www.empireonline.com has thier 'E' as an icon in the address bar.

    How do you do it?

    cheers

    They're called favicons - basically you need to create an .ico file and upload it to your server (gif and png will also work in most browsers, but notably not for IE 6 and below). You can then link to the file from your page by placing something like,

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="path_to_your/icon.ico" />

    in the head of the page.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon has more details
