Q1518 How can I get the logo in the url-field, such as Altavista (www.av.com) and Gelon net (www.gelon.net), which when you've bookmarked the page you then see the small icon next to your bookmark (instead of the usual html-extensio nicon)?

There is no cooding needed for this little trick. Just place a file called Favicon.ico in the root of your web-folder. Whenever Internet Explorer 5 tries to bookmark a page, it searches for this little image, and if it is found, it will be added to the "Favorites" menu.

Another source for more information is: http://www.favicon.com
