the standard practice is to include multiple resolutions in an .ico file

Sounds like this would be better as a web app + an accompanying article.

Had a quick search and there's a few "generators" out there, but they're all ad-laden and frankly rubbish. Is there a decent one already out there that I've missed?

All it would need is a box per size of icon that's likely to be displayed (along with a label describing when it would be used), allow the user to drag in a PNG to a box, or automatically generate it from the next size up, then a button to package it as an ico. Should be possible to do clientside.

Old thread, but I ran into the same problem this week. This site lets you upload multiple sizes of PNG and download a single multi-resolution icon file. Not an especially slick interface, but certainly did what it says on the tin.

@samdutton Sam you are assigned to this. What shall we do with this? Should we work it into @petele mobile guides.?

Does it maybe make sense to include a short paragraph in the update to the mobifying doc with a link to any appropriate tools?
