The favicon is an image that can be used to represent your site. At 16 x 16 pixels, you need to be creative in a very small space. It may be displayed next to your site’s name in a favorite list. It is a nice little extra to have. It can be added in the head of your html page using a link tag. The format is <link href=”favicon.ico” rel=”shortcut icon” type=”image/x-icon”>. You can create them in almost any graphics program but a nice site which will allow you to do it is favicon.cc.
