usage, none. Browsers fetch it automatically.

When a site has a favicon.ico file in its root directory, browsesrs fetch it and display it as an indentity mark, particularly on the page's tab. A .ico file can support multiple sizes of image. For professional sites, each size is created by an artist. For physpics, the default is to supply one large image in /images/logos/favicon.png. From that, the page Makefile derives images of size 16, 32, 64, and 256. All of which it combines into favicon.ico and copies to /favicon.ico. In addition it creates file /apple-touch-icon.png (256x256) and copit also to /.

The default original image (favicon.png) is a 256x256 version of the writing hand ().

To produce other sizes of favicon or apple-touch-icon, just name them in COPYFILES, say favaicon48.png or apple-touch-icon-140.png.
