    Question Icons for webpages in favorites

    How are icons set for certain pages in my favorites menu for IE6?

    maddox.xmission.com has the little Che communist guy
    yahoo.com has the Y! logo
    deadjournal.com has a tombstone.

    how do hey set those, i've never seen that tombstone pic on DJ, so i know it's not something it takes of the page.

    It is part of the page, for example my website. With this code in the head tags::
    Code:
    <link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="deutsch.ico" title="external:/deutsch.ico">
    I am allowed to display the icon in the address bar and in firefox both on the address bar and the tab. If you bookmark my webpage, it will save the icon along with it- at least the first time you use the bookmark. When you clear your temp the icon will disappear. Other then code in the webpage, it might also have to do with their server setting the icon.

    no problem. If you can't find it in the <head></head> tags then it is a server job. The head tags are in the very top part of the source. I don't understand how the server does the icon- although I would like to know .
