File does not exist: /wwwroot/favicon.ico

Posted on 2004-11-25

I can understand that 'modern' browsers look for a favorites icon but why do I need to get 1000s of error messages /day about it in my APACHE error log? (every page hit seems to result in at least one query for favico.ico)  Other then to provide a favico, is there a way to stop apache complaining about this particular error?

With kind regards
