.ico supported sizes?

Hello, I'm just wondering what the supported icon sizes are. Can you have an custom icon size that is 20x32 instead of 32x32? Or any size inbetween up to 256x256? I couldn't seem to find the answer on google. Thanks, it's much appreciated. =)

Also Windows uses icons for Context Menu commands of 13x13. Probably undocumented. But I think the 13x13 is a .bmp not an .ico.

The sizes of icons supported depends on where and how it is used. Some uses are more restrictive than others. Within limits an application can create and use an icon of just about any size and shape it wishes but Window is usually more restrictive.
