I created and uploaded it long ago, and it worked for a while, but no longer. So, I deleted and uploaded again (to public_html), and it's still not being seen either in Safari or Firefox.

Hello mamomi,

In order for the favicon to work, it must have a reference link on each page that is is supposed to appear on. This link is not present on your files. It would appear it needs to be set again within your iWeb program so it will insert it into all file.

For reference, the link should appear as follows in the source code of each page, within the <head> tag:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://mamomi.net/favicon7.ico" />

I tested this on your Home.html page and it began working great, but as the iWeb will override any manual changes, it needs to be corrected there.

Best Regards,
Scott M
