<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico"/>

Is the very cross browser way for a favicon.

Right at the end -
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.yourdomain.com/favicon.ico" />

Relative linking is better, because then if you move the site it will still work.

What Synook suggested should work. A favicon is usually located at the root domain if you have a domain name, so /favicon.ico should work.Also, since the name of the favicon is called "favicon.ico", I don't know why Internet Explorer isn't detecting it.

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon"><link rel="icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon">And make sure the favicon is in the correct folder.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon

Hi FirefoxRocks,Still Synook's suggestion is not working. YUP!!!... The "favicon.ico" file is located at the root domain. Pull the following URL in your IE and Mozilla Firefox.http://www.mirroremage.com/testing.html Shows-Up in Mozilla Firefox and Acts-Up in IE :)

Whatt??? But how-come it's working for you in IE 7??? What exactly did you see??? The MARON color square???Please confirm.Thanks.
It's working for my IE7 too. I see a red-like (or is that what "maron" looks like?) square.As I said earlier, you only need
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico"/>

but as suggested, you should probably add a space at the end, between '"' and '/>', making it:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" />

The type attribute, as suggested by jlhaslip is most of the times (if not always) ignored, so you don't need to include it. It's a few bytes saving after all.If you can't see your square after that, than... I don't know... a currupted IE install? IE 7 beta? An older IE?

Hi jlhaslip,Heyy... It's working perfect now!!!.. Woo!!!... Hoo!!!... I re-designed the favicon.ico file from Photoshop.

Hi Folks,BACK AGAIN!!!...In some websites, there won't be a "favicon.ico" file in their source code BUT STILL THE "Favicon Icon" show-up in their URL / Web Link.Just Wondering How Do They Do That!!! - JavaScript???- CSS??? :)
Server settings.A lot of servers are configured to automatically use favicon.ico on all pages if it's in the top directory of the website.
