add a line of code to your mainheader.htm file
and an icon file in the /images/



<link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="http://www.buellxb.com/images/favicon.ico" mce_href="http://www.buellxb.com/images/favicon.ico"/>this would go in between the <head> and </head>


and we can have a little icon for the site rather than nothing for our bookmarks

That pegasus is going to get totally lost when the icon compresses down for bookmark use. It'd be better to forget the text, and clean up just the head of the pegasus.

yeah that is a favicons largest format which is 64x64 pixels. I just cant think of something that would be easily recognized as a buellxb.com thing in 16x16 pixels.

I think probably the simplest thing would just be "XB" with Buell colors (blue background, orange outline, white interior).

Beyond that, just doing the head of the pegasus with a blue backround and a orange outline would probably work just fine.

If my Wacom weren't packed away in my studio I'd bust it out and knock out a quick icon.

the favorite icon needs to be linked back to the FQDN


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

rather than


<link href="images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" rel="shortcut icon"/>
