Thanks for the really quick Reply

Under "Legacy" its says "Microsoft Internet Explorer supports only the ICO file format; simply changing the filename extension of an image to .ico without converting it to an ICO file will result in an error and not displaying the favicon. Netscape 7 and Internet Explorer versions 5 and 6 browsers display the favicon only when the page is bookmarked, and not simply when the page is visited as in later browsers."
