Just go into your Management Console, and start the Publish Application Wizard.
Give your "App" a name, like "YYY Website", Next
At the "Application Type", select "Content" and type in the web address. Next.

Just that easy...
In some cases, you want to publish IEXPLORE.EXE with the website URL as a parameter, rather than publishing the URL. This is usually done to ensure it runs on the Citrix server rather than as content redirection onto the local machine.

Ok If I do it the top way i seem to get IE open up on my client - I assume this is the content re-direction so I need to specify the URL as a parameter.  Could you tell me what the code for this would be please - just an example would be good.

Depending on how your PATH is set up on the server, you may be able to omit the path on the .EXE (e.g. IExplore

I tried the accepted solution and when the published app is launched, I get an error in IE saying that there was no connection. It's like Internet Explorer can't connect to the Internet. We're using PS 4.0 and Win2k3 with IE 7. Is there something else I have to enable?

There may be policy restrictions in place, or IE may not be configured properly.
