I'm creating some Content Types...

Is there any way to put inside the XML the information to describe the Icon of a Specific content type?

Something that overrides the document type or the folder icon..

Thank you very much!

In general most of the icons for document are defined in a file called docicon.xml you will find more on this in the following link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms463701.aspx

    But if I want to use it with Content Types, not looking at file extension or something else.. How could I do?

Assigning Icons to the Features is quite possible but I don't think so you can do it for Content Types.
