transparent PNGs in IE?

Post by Corellia » Mon Jun 04, 2007 4:19 am

something I encountered just now... I checked my website with internet explorer by accident... because it's the only browser we got here at work. I normally use firefox, and just noticed that in IE the little transparent PNG files on the start page (the ones that look ilke the menu mouse cursor from TRA) are not transparent at all... :?

can anyone tell my why the hell IE doesn't support transparency in PNG files? or if it does, from which version on or what do I have to change in the settings? I saw it on IE 6 just now, and it freaks me out, because PNG files are older than IE6 and it really should display them properly. :shock:

I know that IE doesn't support the transparency of PNG's. Maybe newer versions (with tabbed browsing) of the IE will support it.

I'm using Firefox too (at work too, I have install it ^^) because the IE sucks. :P
