Another way
Authored by: jcstudio on Jan 31, '03 06:34:32PM

I found that emptying Safari's cache, then clearing the history, does the trick. I had a bad favicon on my site that rendered garbage, but after doing this it cleared the way for my new icon. I am using my favicon on a .mac hosted site with no problem. I couldn't get Photoshop to save as the proper format (a Windows ICO file) but Graphic Converter took care of it.

PNG/GIF/JPG can also work

Many browsers will also show 16x16 pixel PNG images in addition to ICO files. Make sure to add a TYPE attribute specifying the Content-Type if you decide to use another format:
<link rel="Icon" href="http://members.shaw.ca/USER/myicon.png" type="image/png">

http://members.shaw.ca/slf/favicon.html
