Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

This is the line I don’t get to work: <link rel="icon" href="/DD_grå.png" type="image/png" sizes="150x150" />

Add it in <head> in a sample website.

Expected Results:

The favicon should appear, like in other web browsers. In IE, it has never appeared, and I know it’s because of the filename, because other favicons without special characters use to work.

Actual Results:
