For those that dom't know a Favicon is, it is a small image file, usually a bmp that is renamed something like favicon.ico and placed on your web server. It appears in the brower bar for the website that you are viewing, it's a nice way of showing off a little bit about yourself and possibally making your site more memorable, it is uaually a 16px x16px or 32px x 32px image that doesn't really give you a lot of room to squeeze in a logo.
