    I just installed wordpress for the first time and I want my blog to include web icons..such as a little clock beside the time and things like that. Is there a plugin for this? I've already downloaded the web icons that I want to use...the problem is, I don't know how to use them. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Just set them up in the CSS as backrounds to the various dohickeys.

    Use something like .meta h4 {background: #fff url(icons/icon.gif') left repeat-no}

    you can just put the HTML, in the right spot in the right template of your theme.

    the code would be like,
    <img src="http://yoursite.com/your-little-clock.gif" alt="Icon of a clock">

    you might find the code that shows the Time in your sidebar.php or index.php or category.php and that is where you would try inserting the HTML above

    always make a backup of your theme before editing the templates within

    I wouldn't follw dgold. Presentational markup is best avoided. Style in the CSS. It might not be easy first time out but that is no reason to go off at a tangent.
