How to make a bookmark icon

Maybe you've noticed, the bookmark for this site now has a li'l icon next to it. Oh, it's just spiffy, I know. It's really easy to make your own but I can only tell you how to do it in Linux. So if you're using windoze, get a real OS and you too can have your very own spiffy little icon doohickey on your interweb page thingy.

In Linux, just open KIconEdit and make your icon and save it as "favicon.ico" then place it somewhere on your site with the following text hidden somewhere in your website:

< link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.eskimo.com/~wage/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

only where it says href="" you put the path to the favicon.ico file between the quotation marks, it might look a little somethin' like this; href="/images/favicon.ico" or href="www.somewhere.com/~yoursite/favicon.ico" You know, wherever.
