 You did, otherwise you would have used a very strange wording for your
response to Colin.

 Again, your response to Colin was completely misleading, then. Make up

 You haven't read the manual page for icotool, have you?  It's clearly
written out in the examples:

    Create an icon named `favicon.ico' with two images:
      $ icotool -c -o favicon.ico mysite_32x32.png mysite_64x64.png

 Yes, it can.  See the EXAMPLES section in the manual page.

 So long!
