Robots.txt is a file that allows or denies robots from indexing or 
crawling the site if they behave as they should. Favicon.ico is an icon 
image that shows up in the address bar of a browser generally to the 
left of the uri. Neither are completely necessary and both are items you 
would create and store in the public html directory as you had noted.
