    That's called a favicon.

    Check out http://www.chami.com/html-kit/services/favicon/ for an online tool to make a favicon from your own graphic.

    You upload the graphic favicon.ico to the root of the website.

    You add the link to the favicon to the head of each page.

    To be able to view favicons in IE, you need to enable personalized favorites menus.

    And be armed with patience because IE typically doesn't like to show them most of the time.

    Once you have created and uploaded your favicon, use the following example between your <head> and </head> tags.

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

    The favicon.ico should be in the same directory that your main page is in.
