    Default Create a WebClip Bookmark Icon
    iPhone and iPod touch allow a user to save a WebClip bookmark to your site on their Home Screen.

    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.

    Safari will automatically composite the icon with the standard "glassy" overlay so it looks like a built-in iPhone or iPod application.

    easiest way to do it would be to create the image and name it apple-touch-icon.png preferably 57px X 57px and upload it to your site directory
