This code starts the home page. The link has to be after the <head> tag. The http://www.w3.org HTML Validation reports 19 errors, but I suspect a good many of them will disappear when you correct this one coding error.

I see the problems with overlaying text in IE which doesn't happen with Firefox, but it is difficult to know if this problem will still happen after you fix the coding problem.

when i set up the favicon that is where they told me to put that particular line of coding. is there another place that i can put it and have it still work?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon has a complete explanation.

The basic point is that <head> through </head> contains certain kinds of statements, and <body> through </body> contains certain kinds of statements.

Maybe someone else can correct me if I am wrong, but only comment statements can appear between <html> and <head> or between </head> and <body> in a valid HTML page.

www.w3.org has the validation process you need. Check that out.

what does validation process mean...?

i have looked at several diggerant pages that have a favicon and 95% look the same. and im sure that they do not have the problem b/w FF and IE. could you possible give me a little more information and that.

ok i fixed it, kinda, and now i have a new problem. when i view in FF everything is like it should but in IE the main body where the text is, drops down and there is a gap. how can i get rid of this gap in IE with out screwing up the look in FF?
