    It needs to be within the HEAD of your document so Headinclude would be the appropriate place.

    Favicon support in IE depends on your Cache and when you bookmark the page. After its term expires in the Cache or you delete the cache, the icon disappears. I suspect this is a flaw in the design.

    I don't think that's required. I think browsers look for the favicon.ico in the same folder, and find it. So if you change the one that's in there, it will probably change all over.

    Normally it's
    <link href="/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon">
    but i didn't find that in the code...
