Fav.ico Problems In (what else) IE

I have just recently begun my foray into the world of Web design, and on my most recent project I thought it would be nice to have the fav.ico on the address bar. I, of course, being new at this had no idea how to do so- LOL so I went to my friend's Blog, The English Guy, and viewed source to see how he had done it. I found what I believed to be the lines of code and transferred them to my file and sure enough, worked like a charm. UNTIL I tested it in Internet Explorer. The fav.ico showed up fine in Netscape and Firefox but not in IE. So hmmmm what to do, why search of course! I found one site that told me that if the icon wasn't created in 16 colors it wouldn't work in IE, so I went and made one in 16 colors and that didn't work either. I finally ran across this forum that had several references to favorite icon, what it is, how to put it in, etc- and scrolling down ran across a post that said if the site is not book marked in favorites that the fav.ico won't show- so I book marked it and sure enough, up it came. So if anyone has had this same problem, here's the solution!

That is a very useful post! Nice to know! As always, IE causes problems. Also - interesting to note that they have commented on several updates coming in IE7 on the IE development blog.
