Upload the favicon.ico file to your server's root directory.
Insert this line of code between the
<Head> </Head> tags on your home or index.html page:
If you wish to use an animated icon too,
upload the animated_favicon1.gif as above
and add one of this code lines:
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

I have the same problem, and I followed your instruction. Still - no favicon.
My WS: www.anatshafran.com
look at your pictures directory, there is no "favicon.ico", I only found "favicon.html"
I don't want to resist, but that's wrong:
<link rel="Shortcut Icon" href="images/favicon.html" type="image/x-icon"/>, you have to refer to your favicon! Like that:
<link rel="Shortcut Icon" href="images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>,
and I can't find your favicon.ico anywhere! Copy and load it up to your imgages-subdirectory!
