X-quisite,

That is called that favicon and done with a file named favicon.ico.  It is a 16x16 image.  Add the tag below to the head section of the html.

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.yourhtmlsource.com/favicon.ico">

There is some information on this at http://www.davesite.com/webstation/html/favicon.shtml.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
