    Actually, no there is not. It is the <link> tag, as can be seen in the link that Adam provided...

    IE seems to have a bug with this. It worked fine in Mozilla 1.4, NN7, and Opera 7. I've noticed this with my own IE browser...

    Theoretically if you place a file expressively called: "favicon.ico" of the type "image/x-icon" within your root directory of your site Micro$oft IE 6.0 will use that if you don't use the (X)HTML link method. It's just one of the many design faults of Micro$oft IE.
