Alex & Mark,

I checked the length of the successful Windows icon file built by 
BMPtoICO and Resorcerer reports the data fork as exactly 744. Norton 
Disk Editor also showed 744 bytes.

Are you using a file editor to check the size? Desktop info may not 
report the actual file size but rather the block size required to 
store the file.
