Okay, most websites, when you add the to your Favourites folder in Windows, they just show up as the default icon for HTML documents. But, some pages (e.g. Buy.com) show up as a custom icon under Favourites; does anyone know how you get a page to do this?

You have to have a custom icon in order to do this (or you can use one of the other windows defaults)

Go into your favorites directory on your hard drive, right click the favorite in question, click properties, click change icon.

Sorry, should have been more specific, I meant to ask what you have to add to a web page of your own design so that when somebody else adds it to their favourites menu, it shows up as a non-standard icon... Presumably it's some tag or other that you have to include in the HEAD section, but I can't figure out what...
