    Icon to html title tag

    Hallo all!

    on the web page for the " Virtual Globe" I create shortcut. I used tag LINK:
    <LINK rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.multi-touch-solution.com/bilder/earth.ico"> with the Earth picture.

    But... It works just for favorites.

    Question: How it works for Tab Icons?

    Thanks in addvance!

    Make sure your .ICO file is really in format X-ICON. Other browsers can sniff a .GIF, a .BMP or whichever as an. ICO by simply changing the extension. IE can not be fooled that way Your favicon earth.ico is, in fact, a Bitmap type, not an x-icon, as it should be.

    Another thing: place your favicon in the root of the site, not in a folder.

    Dear Kor,

    thx for your help!
    I put favicon.ico in the root of my website Multi-touch Earth solution.

    But...
    It dosn't work with IE.

    I asked my designer to convert my bitmap into x-icon format.
    Will be see...

    Once more thx in addvance!

    Your Gennadi

    Try to not specify the type:
    Code:
    <link rel="icon" href="http://www.restaurator-muenchen.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    Remove the red.

    You have two lines:
    Code:
    <link rel="icon" href="http://www.restaurator-muenchen.com/favicon.ico" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.restaurator-muenchen.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>
    One is enough:
    Code:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.restaurator-muenchen.com/favicon.ico" />

    And, once again: your icon must be a ICON. Your icon is in fact a BMP, not an ICON type... Your designer has not converted your BMP into an ICO.

    i think you can use paint in windows and when you save the file just add .ico to it or use an online icon generator to convert your image to a .ico file
