The only thing i thought of was putting <img> tags in between the title tags. Didn't work.
I have added this code-
<link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>
-to my index.html document as a test and it works fine offline.
However when I upload it with filezilla it does not appear. I am testing in IE8 and FF3. I have also validated my xhtml 1.0.
When viewed from the ftp software on the server the file does not show a thumbnail of the image, but it does on my local drive.
Can anyone give me any tips?
Navigate to the favicon URL directly in the browers, hit Ctrl+F5 a few times, then visit the site again.
For other visitors hitting your site for the first time, it should work okay. For repeat visitors, tough :)
Second line alone should be more than enough to get it working AFAIK.
I vaguely remember something of the favicon working better if you have a full URL in there (Long time since I last played with it)
<link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="http://www.example.com/favicon.ico"
