Resumo

 It is well known that the essential norm of a Toeplitz operator on the Hardy space $H^p(\mathbb{T})$, $1 < p < \infty$, is greater than or equal to the supremum norm of its symbol. In 1988, A. B\"ottcher, N. Krupnik, and B. Silbermann posed a question on whether or not the equality holds in the case of continuous symbols. We answer this question in the negative. On the other hand, we show that the essential norm of a Toeplitz operator with a continuous symbol is less than or equal to twice the supremum norm of the symbol and prove more precise $p$-dependent  estimates. We also discuss some open questions related to the above estimates.
