There's a nice little Mac freeware app named IcoMaker for creating .ico files from GIF files. .ico files are actually containers for various icon sizes and color depths and this app allows you to create an .ico file out of up to six sizes/depths. I stole the favico from zope.org and made one using IcoMaker with a single size/depth (16x16/16colors). It's attached. I haven't tried it in IE. If it doesn't work for whatever reason, maybe someone else who has more icon-foo can do a more thorough job.

Yeah, that's nice. Does it work as a PNG, though? I was under the
impression (and thought  the spec requires) that favicons must be
*.ico files.

A PNG favicon will work in the Mozilla family, but not in IE.

However I'd be surprised if a .gif didn't work.

So far as I can tell, neither .png nor .gif work for favicon.ico in IE. It will display a gif/png named favicon.ico in the browser, but it won't use
it as an icon on the address bar/favourites.
