Ugh.  Well, screw IE (unless someone can fix and test the icons for me).
I don't have Windows, and therefore don't have access to IE.  (THANK GOD!)

The icons work perfectly under Konqueror. :)

Perhaps an upgrade from Win/IE to Linux/Konq is what everyone in the world
needs? :)

Anyone happen to know if any other 'favicon.ico'-supporting browsers
have problems?  (Does Moz support icons?)

Bleh.  I don't even have WINE.  I'm 99.9% Microsoft free.
(I have their free TrueType fonts installed :^)  I do NOT have any MS mice
or keyboards, even)
