    Could anyone please help me with the shortcut icon for ie. It is NOT
    of great urgency so don't waste your Sunday if you have better things
    to do, but I cant figure it out. I have no problems displaying the
    bitmap in firefox, I don't know about any other browsers but i.e. 7
    wont display it. Site is:
    I have tried putting the favicon.ico file in every directory including
    the images folder and linking to it.
    I have tried just <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico.bmp">.
    Then tried changing the mimetype to "image/" and
    I have also tried absoulte url's, and just placing a favicon.ico file
    in the root.
    The file is 32x32 and 16 bit depth in windows byte order bmp file.
    Thank you, Stuart.

    Thanks for all your help Doug. Much appreciated. I converted to a 16x16px
    8bit png, but still no joy. I am going to call it a day on this for the
    time being, the server is now down (, please don't rip on me).
    Regards, Stu.
