does someone ask this most weeks?... tried looking through threads here but couldn't find an answer...

is there some secret way of storing a tiny gif so that safair sees it and puts it in the address bar?

you mean the "favicon"?

you will need to safe it as a tiny windows icon in .ico format. you can get a "filter" from iconfactory for making icons in photoshop, which is what i use. then, you place it into your page like this...
<link rel ="shortcut icon" href="http://www.mysite.com/pathto/favicon.ico">
