Nope. You can still design the bitmap in FW, though.
Then you have basically two options:
- Convert the bitmap (.bmp, .tiff, .gif, .jpg, .png ...) to a .ico.
There are a number of programs which will do that, most of them free.
If you're on Windows, IrfanView ( http://irfanview.com/) will do it,
and it's a really nice image viewer to boot.
- Many browsers recognize other filetypes as favicons. In the line of
code below, change image/x-icon to the mimetype appropriate for the
image type. (image/jpeg, image/gif, image/png)
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/path/to/myfavicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
No, it can't do it.
Strange, since it's touted as a "web graphics" tool and yet it can't do an
elementary graphical element used on the web. Makes you wonder.
