Rob, you're actually more limited than you think. Rev can only use 32x32
16 *color* icons (not 16-bit). However most of us have gotten around
this by making shortcuts to our apps and setting the icon of the
shortcut to point to a better/richer icon file. I haven't done 48x48

Subject: Windows XP icons in Builder

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to give a Rev app a Windows XP icon
(48x48) with the alpha-blending, so that it blends in with the desktop?
Whenever I tried doing this with thei Builder app, it said it didn't
like my icon format (It wanted a 32x32 16-bit icon instead).  Am I
really limited in this way?
