To add a favicon.ico to your site, add it to the root of your web content. The name has to be favicon.ico

To create such a file, create any 16×16 or 32×32 .ppm file. It must have a maximum of 256 colours. If there are more, do pnmquant 256 source.ppm > target.ppm. Then run ppmtowinicon -output favicon.ico target.ppm. Note: these two tools are in the netbpm package.
