I liked the teddy bear icon so much, I decided to use it as my favicon on one of my personal sites. But there are also presents, lights, santa hats and more. And these icon sets come in several formats so you can use them for lots of different things on your site. Fun!

I found your discussion about adding graphics to your website. I publish a weekly newsletter for our local Rotary club, and thought it would be fun to put a $ in for the lists I do. I can’t seem to get anything but dot, circle and square. Is there a way to add these symbols like a $ or a heart as a symbol that is used, or is limited to the three symbols?

Thanks.

@matt – it’s pretty hard to add custom symbols as list bullets, but you can do it with images. Here’s an article that explains how: http://webdesign.about.com/od/css/a/aa012907.htm

@richard – Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.
