    possible solution to disappearing IE favicon problem?

    I noticed that some sites put their favicon link beofre the html tag, above the head. And so far their favorites icon appears persistent. I put mine in the head and sometimes it's there and sometimes it isn't. An examples would be http://www.blackcode.com

    If this the solution to his problem? If it is, will the page validate?

    This is more on the softare side ... IE is not very good with keeping the same favicon, it often loses them. I'd go as far as saying it rarely displays them for me on IE 6. Oh well, doesn't matter to me.

    I think its it because they are stored in the Temperary Internet Files folder and this folder delets stuff to make it only a certain size. That way you have HD space left. Well it also takes the icons with it. You should get FavOrg. It will check your favorites for missing links and save their icons so they won't disappear.
