[thelist] How do I force favicon refresh in IE?

Hey all,

I recently blanket updated my clients' sites to include our agency's favicon
by default, but in one case the client already had a favicon. I have since
put theirs back in, but despite refreshes she can't see that because IE
stores favicons in a bizarre compartment separate from its normal cache.

The client isn't very technically-minded and does not take the 'it'll work
fine for everyone else' line (reasonably so) – so I'm struggling to find a
way to make them see the site as it really is (with the new favicon).
Anybody know how you can get them to force good behaviour out of IE??
