1. Yes, I am wanting to serve up icons to each "directory"
(explained in a reply to another post)

2. I have added the element as you describe (as well as
one that caters for IE syntax).

3.  I have installed the "Live HTTP Headers" - I am not
exactly what I am looking for in the text that emerges.
I see a :
GET /cocoon/mydirectory/favicon.png HTTP/1.1
entry, which assume means the file is being served from
the right place

The icon *does* now show up in FF, but not in IE ...
possibly that is a cache problem?  Without the live headers
functionality, I guess that is hard to trace.

4.  I was not aware of starting "new" threads - as always
I just hit "reply to" when someone posts a response on
this topic... it might be the thread has numerous "sub-
threads", but I am not sure why that is incorrect?

In case of 
the domain is just "".
And this is where most(?) browsers are looking for a "favicon.ico".

So you need to serve a file 
and this will be used for the whole domain "".

If you want to serve different favicons to individual "diretories", then
you will have to put a
  <link rel="icon" type="image/ico" href="whatever" /> link element
into each pages header. Take care for (non-x)html served as "text/html"
not to close this element as in your original posting.

Why don't you simply get "Live HTTP Headers" and check its output of
some requests e.g.
This would tell you much more than any explanation.

And please Derek, stay in the threads. Don't start new threads for each
posting to the same thread.
