Not so clearly, I would say.
<LINK REL="icon" HREF="images/mozilla-16.png" TYPE="image/png">
<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="/images/global/branding/dellecomicon.ico">
Implies that BOTH link elements must be supplied, when they do not. Also, the form is HTML, not XHTML. It should read:
"<link rel="icon" href="images/mozilla-16.png" type="image/png" />
<link rel="icon" href="images/mozilla-16.ico" />"
Also, mentioning the fact that "shortcut icon" and "icon" and several other possible values for the relation element will all work is a mistake; better to come up with a standard and keep the support for non-standard formulations out of the documentation as a kind of quirk (not quirks mode, but you get the idea). Also, I'd say that the phrase "shortcut icon" is redundant: an icon is a visual representation of a file or symbolic link or feature, and a shortcut is a visual representation of a symbolic link - "shortcut" is a subset of "icon"; so I'd stick with "icon." Yeah, I know there's a bug with this whole discussion on it.
Sorry to be a pain in the ass with these comments, which are merely intended to be constructive; I'm very happy with the support that's been provided (in the recent nightlies; I've stopped downloading the milestones): finally I can tell which tab is which without using my brain!
