So correct me if I got the wrong message out of your post.

You want to know how you can create an icon that is smooth instead of pix-elated right?

There is a way to do this on Photoshop however I don't recommend it. In order to do it you would have to create the icon in a higher resolution and then shrink it and save for web. 

The best way to accomplish the smooth look in your Icon would be to create it in Illustrator or another Vector Imaging Software. by using a Vector program if you have to re-size it in the XHTML, CSS or other web language it will remain smooth at all times. 

The problem with Photoshop is that it is a raster or pixel based imaging software. if you enlarge something in Photoshop it loses image quality and the more you enlarge it the more pix-elated it becomes. 

Illustrator is an equation based imaging software. This means that when ever an image is created in Illustrator and re-sized in the in Illustrator it will remain sharp and clean.
