I'm trying to have an icon next to my web address when someone visits my page. However the icon never seems to appear. I have the following code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8">

I'm seeing a favicon when I visit your site. I'm using firefox. If you're using internet explorer, it can be a little...odd...with favicons, you might have to bookmark the page before it shows.


As far as I can see favicon is only available to selected browser and selected browser version.

Favicon is only available to Firefox and IE7 browser, there for IE6 and older is not available for favicon. I mean you see the favicon on the Address Bar.


That's what I was saying. In IE 4-6 you have to bookmark the page to see the favicon (and sometimes it likes to disappear). Anyway, the icon is showing up in browsers that support it fully.


favicons are usually cleared out of your bookmark lists whenever you delete your temp internet files.
