I've noticed that, in MS IE7, for some websites (Google is one of them) there are tiny icons specific to those websites that appear in front of the URL in the address bar drop-down instead of the generic IE icon. How is this done? I'm not seeing these in IE6, so this is a new feature of IE7?

It also depends on the website how it is setup. If you look at this website you will see a small blue monitor in front of the URL.

I believe that little icon is called a "favicon".

Wikipedia's article on them is h e r e.

You can actually download these things, store them on your HD, and use them with your "favorites" in IE if a website isn't already using one, like BC does.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
