I am trying to find a good description and clear format of the contents and meanings of the sections of an icon (.ico) file.

I have been "Googleing" for a couple hours and the best I can find is:
http://www.daubnet.com/formats/ICO.html#BasicDescription.

Does anyone have a better link or source?

Hi msmith,

For a practical example I have a SaveAsIcon addin with source for TBPaint available on my website. It is commented (though not very well) so you can pretty much follow it easily. It creates a single icon of a variable size.
