I have a web page and a 'favicon.ico' in the same directory.

I am using this code to point to the icon.
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>

All things being equal I should have the favicon showing in the tab, and yet it isn't.

I have cleared the cache and restarted the browser, yet still it is not showing.

Anthing obvious that I am missing?
