Sorry missed the earlier bit on this - what format does this ICO image have
to be in?

I can imagine this cute little icon would make all you techies shudder with
disgust but if anyone knows how to do this..

All I want to know is whether to use a path to the icon in my document?

There seems to be two methods of achieving this:

1. Stick the iddy biddy icon in *every* directory.
2. Stick it in the root directory and stick this bit of code in all of your
documents: LINK REL='SHORTCUT ICON' href='/path/foo.ico'

I have gone for the former because it's easier.  Sometimes the icon appears
in the location bar and sometimes it doesn't.  Anyone have any ideas?
