#59. Adding a Favorite Icon to a Page
Favorite icons (or favicons) are the little custom icons that appear next to the address of a Web site or in the bookmarks or Favorites of your browser (Figure 59a). Although favorite icons are prevalent throughout the Web, they've been complicated to create and add to your Web pages.

GoLive CS2 simplifies this process with its introduction of Smart Favorite Icons.
