Step 2: Create your Icon
Use your favourite icon editor (or get one here) to create a 16x16 icon file. Then name it favicon.ico and put it into each directory that people would bookmark your site from.

This is how it will look in the browser address bar. Pretty groovy heh?

More on Associating your Icon
There are two ways of associating your icon with your web page. The first there is the method stated in STEP 2 which is to simply save the icon as the default file name, favicon.ico in the root directory of your domain. The address would look something like this:

When your visitor bookmarks your site, your browser will search for this file and place it against any of your visitor's favourites that originate from your site.

The second method of associating your icon with your site is to save it as a relevant file name, for example, Fkiticon.ico. Now add the following HTML code to the HEAD section of your web pages. The LINK tag points to the location and name of your icon file.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
