To specify a bookmark icon for all pages of a web site, place a PNG image named "apple-touch-icon.png" at the root directory of your web server - similar to the "favicon.ico" for site icons.
To override the site bookmark icon on a specific web page, insert a <link> element similar to <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/customIcon.png"/> within the <head> element of the page.
The bookmark icon dimensions should be 57x57 pixels. If the icon is a different size it will be scaled and cropped to fit.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

I have a quick question:
I would like to edit the url of a bookmark added on my homescreen. Look like there might be a way to do this using the method described here.
right on my home screen.
I'm no 2.0 3G phone.
Thanks in advance!MacBook PRO, Mac OS X (10.5.4), BootCamp XP

Then zoom in on the image so that it fills your iPhone window. Then touch the "plus" button to create a homepage icon. The icon is created using that zoomed view of the page. Only caveat is that link will now take you to that zoomed area on the page. But a quick double tap zooms you out.
But hey, does anyone know how to add a custom icon to a bookmark? Is it possible? Sounds like an app opportunity!Iphone "classic", Mac OS X (10.4.11)
