Hello Erdoh,

Thank you for taking the time to write and to submit an
icon. For the moment, W3C has chosen not to make available
a favicon for the (general) site. There are some architectural
issues [1] that are being discussed by the W3C Technical
Architecture Group that may lead to a better solution for
providing metadata such as an icon. For the moment, we are
simply "on hold" waiting for more input from the TAG.

Thank you,

 _ Ian
