Uh... it is a HTML feature called a favicon - put this in your header:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="icon.ico" />

Favicons should be 16*16, and for maximum compatibility should be icons.

Although the link code posted above will work, the current suggestion is to use the following link tag, AFAIK:

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" href="favicon.ico" />

Using an ico creator, upload the ico file to the "public_html" or "www" folder which contains the site, and then add the above link tag to all of the pages.Online ico creators can be found by using Google, or you may try:http://www.html-kit.com/favicon/ orhttp://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/Free plugin for photoshop: http://www.telegraphics.com.au/svn/icoform...ist/README.html

I tried adding the HTML after my (<head>) thing in Dreamweaver 8 and previewed it in Firefox and it didn't work. Noob at this if you could help this is the code so far...<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" ><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" /><title>Untitled Document</title></head><body>Your Mom goes to college </body></html>The site said to put this after the <head> thing <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" >

Try the other option, and did you upload the favicon into the public_html or www folder? Is it a true ico format, not simply a squashed gif or jpg?besides, i wouldn't trust dreamweaver to do that correctly. Go live and test it. If you do the link tag, upload the favicon and then Bookmark the page, a real browser will use the favicon on the bookmark, too.

The folder in your Hosting account that people can connect to. The same place as you place your index or home page.and we were all noobies once ... keep asking questions. We'll let you know when it is too much.

Checklist:1. Did you create an icon and name it favicon.ico?2. Did you upload it into the same folder as your webpage?
