Hey guys, I still got the problem with IE ignoring PNG transparency. Transforming them to GIFs does make them look ugly. Any hint for a graphic idiot?

    Yeah it's a tough one. I'd wager the web would look very different (ie much nicer) were it not for this bug!
  • Yeah, could all be so simple, eh?

    So, got a hint how to transform PNGs into GIFs without having coarse borders?
  • Depends on what's in the background! and are both interesting reads on this topic...

    Vanilla one, changing between read and not read. I will check Alistapart, which I like indeed. Thanks!
  • Seach this forum, there are an couple of other useful links on the subject

    @ Max_B:
    You are right. I should do so. Thanks.
  • A simple little bit of javascript is all you need. Then as long as you call the png with an image tag, you're golden. A little bit of google will find the light on the script. If you need then as a css background property, then you need the IE7 javascript library, which also fixes several other IE annoyances as well. The library is about 20k or so, but it pretty much eliminates the need for most hacks for IE.
  • I'll try to find it. Thanks Thunder.
  • i found this old alistapart article to be in the easiest to read. I also used the [if IE] so that it'd only go through the CSS hack for IE. all other browsers [if !IE] i used png as is.
