Many favicons on one site

I've been playing with this recently, in a bit of tidying up my main site (along with putting in better typography - things like “” rather than "" or — instead of parenthetical dashes. And also putting a different favicon on each sub-section.

My heuristic discoveries are that

  • You need to have a <site root>/favicon.ico to start with
  • you need to put the <link rel="shortcut icon" href="whatever" > last in the <head>
  • In Firefox, the subordinate icons will show in the address tab, but in the address only if you refresh the page.
