JSI Tip 3217. Why does the bookmark for this site use a custom icon?

When you view the shortcut (.url) for this site, instead of the standard Internet Explorer icon, you see what this figure shows. 

If you place a standard .ico file named favicon.ico in the root of your web, Internet Explorer will automatically use this custom icon file.
