Hello, the favicon on my (hand-coded html) site is displaying, but the size at which it displays is far too small. I have searched the forums and while I see some other people with the same problem, I don't see an answer... the answer is not that the image is the wrong size/file type/etc, because I have tried multiple times...am using an .ico file...
Thanks in advance!

Solved this problem, in a way, though it defies the normal logic of coding...
first off, the ico images were in a wrong format, though they were ico files somehow they had not been converted right (when opened in preview, they showed as multiple images instead of just one -- maybe intended for cross browser support?). I had gotten one of these images from the internet and one I converted online...so they were wrongly formatted.
secondly, they only work if they are specifically NOT named favicon.ico! very strange...any other file name.ico works...
Hope to be of help to someone with the same problem in the future!
