Favicons...

My favicons show up in all tested browsers apart from the BT Yahoo tabbed browser.

Most favicons appear on the tabs, but my own and a few others (including PCA) just show as the usual sheet of paper. Obviously there must be another way to add them to sites.

At the moment I just put them into the root folder, and they show up on the other browsers. Any ideas?

Have you looked at the source code of the sites to see whether you can spot any difference in the way those that show up, and those that don't, link to the favicon?

Chami provide a free online favicon validator which might help you to pinpoint the problem: click here

I'll have a look. It's funny, but it's only PCA, a few others, and my own sites that dont show. They show up in IE and FF. Weird.

I uploaded my icon to your link, as they said it was not recognised, and now it works. Cheers.
