FAVICON - how's it used?

Save an icon file in the root directory of your site as FAVICON.ICO

When an MSIE-using visitor adds your site to Favorites, your icon will appear next to the listing for your site on their favorites list.

If you don't have access to root directory then you'd have to modify every HTML file on your site to include:

<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="/yoursitename/favicon.ico">

For more information (albeit in French)
Or here if you don't mind Java apps and a very slow site. Sigh.

To allow a visitor to add your site to Favorites using Javascript:

<script language="JavaScript">
    function bookmarkSite()
      if (document.all) file://IE
        {window.external.addFavorite(window.location.href, "Your-site-title-here");}
        {alert("To be used with IE only. \n In " + navigator.appName + "use CTRL + D to bookmark.");}
    if(document.all) file://IE
        { document.write('<a href="#" onClick="bookmarkSite()">Bookmark this site</a>'); }
// -->

Here it is live. In theory.

Heaven help us if that linewrapped.
