replaced the DW favicon.ico with a newly created icon
I can see it at http://susanwills.com/favicon.ico
Also tried it as a gif - that’s not working either.
Any ideas?

Shows up fine for me — some web browsers can be really stubborn about refusing to display a newly installed favicon immediately, and I’d be willing to bet that’s all that’s going on.

Which browser are you using? Safari has a “Reset Safari” option under the Safari menu that will let you clear out “Website icons.”

I’m using IE8. I was able to check it on a friends laptop and it was working. He was also on IE8, so maybe I will see it eventually.
Thanks for your help.
