I need two Favicons.  One with TP and the other with FM. Both should be gray background with black lettering.  The only thing animated should be that the lettering fades in and out in a subtle way.  Sort of like flashing an open sign in a restaurant except a little classier.   Creative assistance greatly appreciated.

The websites affected are.

This is fairly easy. Have a look:

This is how I did:

I created a 16x16 canvas in Photoshop.
Added a grey background and put in the letters FM on a new layer.
Then, I went to Window->Animation in the top menu.
I then created 3 key frames in the animation timeline and changed the letters' opacity to 30% on the centre key frame.
I then went to File->Save for Web and Devices and saved the image as a GIF.
Then, I went to favicon.cc and uploaded my gif.
It then got automatically converted into an ICO file, ready for download and use.
