I notice lately that certain pages that I bookmark appear with their cute logo instead of the normal "e". How is that done?? Help!

It's called a "favicon" (favourites icon). You need to create on and upload it to your website, (if your host allows it) - filetype is .ico
More about them here:
Scroll down the page to see how to create your own. IconForge is shareware, you can also get freeware icon creators such as LiquidIcon http://www.x2studios.com/index.php?page=products&id=11
The main thing is to make sure the filesize and width/height are right.

So what's the web page? I want to visit!

How can you do this with the Netscape browser?
It adds the icon to the "Tab" and "Address Bar" but NOT to the bookmarks...
In IE it adds it to the Bookmarks but NOT to the address bar...!!!
How can I get both happening in both browsers!?!?!

If you're using 7.1, Edit, preferences, appearance, and tick (check) "web site icons". Older versions may be the same. Everyone else calls these "favicons", but Netscape like to be different.
I have to use Netscape for two sites that refuse to work in IE - there will never be a perfect browser, I suppose

Thankyou very much for your help.
I already have the "Show web site icons" box checked...
The problem in Netscape 7.1 seems to be the following:
Netscape 7.1 shows favicons in the "Manage Bookmarks" section, but DOES NOT show any icons when I'm simply in the "Bookmarks" section trying to select a previously marked page to go to.
Perhaps, as you say, there are no perfect browsers...
