I don't see it either, but I also don't see anywhere in your source code where you've said where the favicon is Smile

I was under the impression that by putting the favicon.ico at the root of the domain it would appear on all pages.

In fact according to Peter's tutorial you shouldn't use a link in the file as that doesn't comply with w3c standards.

4WH's favicon works without a <link etc >

Ya, but it doesn't appear in the address bar.
You need to put <link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="http://yoursite.com/favicon.ico" /> to make it work I believe.
It doesn't even appear in the bookmark list in moz without that I don't think. I think the link does comply with XHTML 1.0 Transitional at least.

Been reading a bit on various sites and there are so many conflicting bits of info its ridiculous Laughing

It would appear that its handle in a different way by just about every browser.

I'm using Safari 1.0 for Mac OS X and that is happy to display it in the address bar and in the bookmarks list - apart from on my site that is.

I'll try adding the link, see what affect it has...

<EDIT>
added the link but makes no difference to me - maybe my icon is no good Sad

<EDIT2>
It shows up in IE 6 favourites!! needs a transparent background though

I can see your favicon when adding the page to my favourites, which is normal because IE has buggy support for favicons in the address bar. The icon looks a little wierd though - when I view it in the browser it's invisible unless it's selected. You're right about browser support, it really depends on the browser.

IT works fine now in the King of Browsers.

BTW, if you have to ask, you should be shot. Smile The King of browsers is Mozilla

Just put:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

in the head and you should be fine. Just remember to make the image 16 X 16 and an .ico file. A very useful site for making your favorite icon is: http://www.cursorarts.com/ (called Icon Forge)
