That method will not work. The <title> only supports plain text. You will need to create an .ico image with the filename of favicon.ico and save it into the root folder of your site (where your default page is).

Alternatively, you can save the icon where ever you wish and call it whatever you want, but simply insert the following code into the <head> section of your HTML and reference your icon:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="your_image_path_and_name.ico" />

Update 1: You can also use a number of online tools to create favicons such as ConvertIcon, which I've used successfully. There are other free online tools available now too, which do the same (accessible by a simple Google search), but also generate other icons such as the Windows 8/10 Start Menu icons and iOS App Icons.
