Run a website and ever wanted to create your own favicon but not sure how? Do you even know what a favicon is??

A favicon, (favourite icon), sometimes known as the website identifying icon, (shown in the browsers header or tab), is a file containing one or more small icons but usually 16×16 pixels. A webpage designer can create this icon and register it as a pages icon by uploading the file to the site and including the following bit of HTML in the pages header, between the <head> </head> tags:-

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

There are many ways of creating the icon file but by far the easiest way is by using a tool such as that at http://favicon.htmlkit.com. This site even allows you to create an animated icon, but just because you can doesn't mean you should!
