Yesterday, while organising my bookmarks in IE6, something happened and a little graphic AT appeared next to my bookmark and also on the address bar.

Please don't misunderstand! I like the graphic! I think it's really cool! :D

My curiousity extends to how it was accomplished. How did that graphic get there? :confused:

It's a so-called favicon ("favourites icon").

This article (http://www.webdevelopersjournal.com/articles/favicon.html) gives some background information on favicons.
And here's a website (http://www.favicon.co.uk) where you can create a favicon for your own website... ;)

Wow! I would have NEVER thought to look here for the answer to that question.

I have been trying to find that out for a long time. I recently just emailed Tech TV that very question, (and by the way they never answered me) because I had briefly caught that topic on one of their Screensaver episodes. Been looking on their web site for the answer since.

Guess I was in the wrong place ;)
