Favicons

I've used Drmwvr to install a head tags link to a .ico (which I got from some website using my logo) in my images folder. It does not appear! This is my header and the code D8 added:

!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "click here">
html xmlns="click here">
head>
meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
title>FOCUS Nursery School at Wareham /title>
link href="../images/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" />
link rel="stylesheet" href="css/2col_leftNav.css" type="text/css" />
script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"> /script>
/head>
body>

Is this correct?

Sometimes it works by just putting the favicon.ico in the root directory of the website.

No need to reference it in the code as a lot of the web browsers look for it automatically.

Alternatively, this is the code from mine:-

<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="click here">

Giving it a definitive reference address may solve the problem.

<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http:// www . rosschapman . co . uk/favicon.ico">

Support for favicons in IE seems to be very hit and miss. click here for helpful information. I use both the tags mentioned in the article and my favicon appears on the address bar in Firefox and Opera but not in IE6.

I have tried changing the ref. to site root and putting the ico in root and this works in FFox but not IE6. I see my ico needs rediesigning as it is not clear. Does flash or fireworks produce these or do I need another program and where can I get it?

You can save bmps, etc, as icon files in irfanview. It's free.
