I adapted your code to my situation (using R2HTML 1.57 on
R 2.3.1 under GNU/Linux and Firefox to open the
resulting HTML file) and did not notice a missing icon.

What browser do you use ?

HTMLStart(outdir = file.path("/home", "tobias", "R", "packages", "R2HTML"),
                   # mind the TRUE instead of T and the FALSE instead of F
                   echo = TRUE, HTMLframe = FALSE, Title = "John Doe HW 1")
as.title("This is my first title")
x <- 1
y <- 2
x + y
