    We are working on our website and I have one quick question. You guys know the little icon that a website loads next to the address. I dont know the name for it. It's the little apple at apples site and the macrumors apple at this site. Kind of like a mini avatar, i dont know the name, am i able to use one of those for my website with golive.

    It's called a flavicon, a 20x20 (IIRC) logo for the site. It's in .ico format. Dang'ed if I know where to put it though.

    here is the tag's format (it goes in the head). dunno what format the image has to be in, might be the same icon format used for folder icons and such...?

    <LINK REL="shortcut icon" HREF="http://www.domain.com/favicon.ico">

    I think this may be what you are looking for

    add this line to your index page before the head tags

    <link REL="SHORTCUT ICON" href="favicon.ico">

    and create a file and call it "favicon.ico" and place it on your root directory , same as your index page

    I hope this helps any!
