Favorite Icons: Favicon

Well, here's how to make them small itty bitty pictures that appear to the left of some URL sites.

1) Make an image that is 16x16. Make sure it is in 16 colors or this won't work.

2) Save it as a normal name (short if possible) and save it as a bitmap selection called an icon (.ico). For example: "favicon.ico"

3) Upload it to your main site.

4) Underneath the <head> brackets, add a new line and add: <LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="">

5) Reload yer page. Unfortunately I cannot make a decent 16x16 icon for my site yet. All the ones I have made look crappy... so if anyone wants to help...
