Just a question to satisfy my curiosity.  I have a favicon which is 16 x 16px.  I link it in the <head> section like this:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.beautifulcastril.com/BC/favicon.GIF" type="image/icon" />

<link rel="icon" href="http://www.beautifulcastril.com/BC/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" />

and have the favicon saved twice, as .GIF and .ico in the correct directory as above.

Now, when I load a new page the icon doesn't appear but if I refresh the screen about 5 times it eventually does.  I'm using Google Chrome as a browser.

The odd thing is that if I click on 'view page source' then the code listing immediately gets the favicon!  Could it be that the two <link>s are inhibiting the favicon in some way?
