    Know that little image in the far left of most address bars, it's sometimes changed by sites like Google (see my example). What code would you have to put into your site to make that image appear there (I want undeadtux!)?

    It's called a favicon.

    It shows with bookmarks too.
    HTML:
    <link href="urlhomedir/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" rel="shortcut icon" />
    It has to be in the root directory, put this by your meta tags or if you don't use meta tags, put them under the title tags.
