Some web sites, such as Experts Exchange, have a custom icon on the tab of IE7.  What is the official name of this icon, and how can I add an image to my site using Front Page 2003?  What image format is suggested?

Im not exactly sure where to place the code.  I am planning on using the same icon throughout my site. Do I need to add it to the <head> of EVERY page, or can I add it to the footer section that I have on all of my pages?

I know where to add it in for a paticular page.  I'm trying to see if I can add it to my footer to avoid placing it on every page of our site.

Some years ago it was usual just to put the favicon.ico in the root folder of your web server, without changing the HTML code of pages in the website. But now it is not recommended... See W3C page: http://www.w3.org/2005/10/howto-favicon, method 2.

I would, as cs97jjm3 suggested, work with dynamic web templates, so that you have to write the link elements defining favicon only once. Dynamic web templates have other advantages, too :-))

No I am not using Dymanic Web templetes.  I created the original site before Front Page and dynamic web templates were invented.  I have been using Front Page to make revisions and update the site since its development.  I'll have to look into converting over into the dynamic templates arena little more.

Did you consider find & replace through the HTML code of the whole site which can insert you those lines of code?
