Re: [vox-tech] [web-dev] Setting website icons?

This is very weird.  I checked out the files from everything2.org,
slashdot.org, lugod.org, billsgames.com, and newbreedsoftware.com and
compared them.  The first two works on IE and Mozilla 1.0 under Windows,
but the rest don't.  After checking out the files using IconEdit32, I
notice no difference (except Everything2.org's file uses 16x16x256 icon.)

Maybe the link tag is required?  The other sites have the link tags (which
I didn't notice before 'cuz I didn't look for .ico...)
