Perhaps David knows of a better way to provide an icon identifier for a
website?
Surely the traffic is caused by ie5 not the favicon icon or the failure to
provide one, and this should be taken upwith MS.
I agree that a gif image would be better, icons require special tools to
make.
Perhaps a linux browser, even the Konqueror already uses a different system?
Could one ensure that they were a suitable size with options for color
etc....?

For the present favicons remain a very useful means of identifying a site
using an icon.
As it is sites that use text, 'flash' or other mm and fail to provide a
suitable gif/jpg image cause endless work for others, trying to link to them
via an icon.
