How do I get my site's icon to appear in the navigation
window of MSIE 5?
A while back I noticed in my error logs a lot of requests for
a file called "favicon.ico". I noticed that it only occured with
Microsoft IE 5.0. At first glance I thought it might be some
strangeness on the part of the browser.
So, I made up a little
icon with the likeness of our favorite bird, stuck it in my main
HTML directory, and got a copy of MSIE 5. When I visited the
site, magically the icon appeared in the address line next to
the URL- as well as on the bookmarks page.
