Subject Re: [users@httpd] Fw: favicon.ico

I don't have any particular axe to grind, but putting a favicon.ico in the
documentroot would avoid the error log starting to fill from the outset.
Also, for someone who had just installed their first ever server, it would
give them a clue how to get their own icon to appear in the browser. This
question comes up regularly.
