Hi there:

You must add a file called "favicon.ico" in your web root directory. This file is an standard windows icon file:

16 colors in the palette
16x16 pixels in size

That's all

xabi I tried this but it does not work.
Root dir, tried it even on a server... Gif was 16x16 px 16 colors. I saved file as gif and renamed it.

Any idea?
