    take your logo and resize to about that size, then save it as a .ico file.

    Then just name it favicon.ico and upload it to the root of your site.

    firefox/ie & the rest of recent browsers always look for a favicon.ico by default; there's no need for that code.... ever look through your web logs and see a couple million favicon.ico 404's? :mamoru:

    It can be any 4x4 dimension. I almost always use 32x32 or 64x64 because if the icon is used as a shortcut on the desktop it still looks good and the browser automatically resizes it properly if it is 4x4, 16x16, 32x32 etc

    You can even create animated favicons which are very easy to create
    Just create an animated gif ( 16*16) using program like Photoshop or something like that and rename it to favicon.ico and Upload this new animated favicon to your web site root folder.
