  • Top level icons (Score:1, Interesting)

    Site looks good (and the slashdot-isms are fine with me).
    Have you thought of providing a /favicon.ico file for IE5 users ? When IE5 bookmarks a site, it silently asks for a /favicon.ico file to use to decorate the link in the menus/links bar/desktop (you can point to a different icon by adding a <link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="..."> tag in the HEAD section.
    .ico is the old microsoft icon file format (holds 32 by 32 and/or 16 by 16 images).
    Adding a favicon.ico doesn't hurt non-IE5 users, but makes shortcuts etc. much more distinctive (have a look at the logs and see how many refused requests you've got) - a small pearl, or a camel maybe...

    Cheers
