That one works, at least in those cases where IE is displaying the icon at
16x16. Some higher resolution images in the file would be useful though for
situations where it decides to display larger icons, otherwise it looks
So far I've found at least 4 different icon sizes used in IE and one
outside. From smallest to largest: address bar and favourites toolbar are
smallest (1), the links toolbar uses a larger icon (2), favourite
properties has the icon on two tabs in different sizes 'web document' (3)
and 'General' (4). And of course IE's favourites are actually just a
folder, so you need a suitable icon for Explorer's icon view (5).
I haven't measured these, but I would guess the sizes I saw were 16, 24,
32, 48, and 64 pixels.
There's an icon maker at http://favicon.ru/en/ which will do 16,32 and 48
pixel images online, but I don't have a decent starting image.
