          Google 'favicon'

            It's called a favicon. You can create a link to the favicon in the head section of your HTML doc like this:

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

            When you place the favicon in the root of your website, for most browsers you dont have to use this link, they will automatically find your favicon

            To create a favicon you can create a picture from 16 by 16 pixels or 32 by 32 pixels. Save this picture with the extension .ico as favicon.ico and upload it to your server. If you have Fireworks you simply can create a favicon.png, copy this (so you have the original saved) and rename this to favicon.ico.
