Description Todd Taft 2007-07-05 23:29:38 EDT
Description of problem:
The MIME type for files of type image/vnd.microsoft.icon (standard extension
.ico) is not defined in the standard file /etc/mime.types . This file format is
a standard format accepted by IANA, as described at
Since this is an IANA defined file type, please add this definition to the
standard mime.types file. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Put an icon file in the DocumentRoot directory of your apache web server
(e.g. favicon.ico)
2.  With firefox, go to http://localhost/favicon.ico
Actual results:
Garbled text appears in the web browser

Expected results:
An icon appears in the web browser

Additional info:
Note: This also needs to be done for other supported platforms/releases,
including RHEL 5.  However, I will not open a separate report for each (unless
you request it).
