Creating favicon.ico... how?
What icon size? What program to use on Linux?

 5:27 pm on Feb 16, 2003 (gmt 0)

I want to create a favicon.ico file for my website. However, I have a couple of newbie questions about it.

1) What size is the icon?

2) What program can I use for creating the favicon.ico? Do I need a special program or would any graphics program do? If I need a special program, what Linux programs are there for creating the icon?

I guess these are very basic questions, but thanks in advance anyway.

1) 16x16
2) ImageMagic should be able to convert to ico format
