    yep thats it, make a windows icon file of the logo (.ico) You can use something like Microangelo to convert a picture to .ico Name the icon "favicon.ico" and put it in the root directory of your site. Thats all there is to it. Good luck!

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="myicon.ico">

    but the user (client) should create a "short cut"  
    (add to favorities)

    then the user will be able to see the icon

    Hi kieferh01,

    I have used IconEdit, and it's good for creating favicons. You can import your own images:

    Microangelo is also good.

    I have also used SnIco Edit (freeware):

    I think they have told you much more. Just make a logo and use as favicon. Just do it man!

    HINT: The simple awnser is to create a new icon, name it favicon.ico, and place it in your root directory. You can add the meta tag if you wish, but that is only needed if the filename is something other the favicon.ico. Its probably best just to keep if favicon.ico, that way you don't need to modify your code.
