  • A favicon (short for "Favorites icon"), also known as a page icon, is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage. A web designer can create such an icon, and many modern web browsers—such as Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, Safari, iCab, Konqueror and even Internet Explorer —can then make use of them. Browsers that support favicons may display them in the browser's URL bar, next to the site's name in lists of bookmarks, and next to the page's title in a tabbed document interface. (Note: Older browsers like Internet Explorer only display the icon in the bookmark. Newer versions might follow modern browsers and have a full support for icons in the address bar and tabs).

  • The original means of defining a favicon was by placing a file called favicon.ico in the root directory of a webserver. This would then automatically be used in Internet Explorer's favorites (bookmarks) display. Later, however, a more flexible system was created, using HTML to indicate the location of an icon for any given page. This is achieved by adding two link elements in the <head> section of the document as detailed below. In this way, any appropriately sized (16×16 pixels or larger) image can be used, and although many still use the .ico format, modern browsers now also support the GIF and PNG image formats. (Note: Newer versions of IE might again follow the example and implement GIF and PNG favicon support).

    • All you have to do is create your icon (16x16 pixels), name it favicon.ico and save it in the root folder of your site.

    If you want to name it another way, add this simple line in the head section of your page:

    <TITLE>Yellowpipe Internet Services </TITLE>
