    For those of you who are interested; I've been getting very frustrated with M$'s lack of PNG graphics in IE (does the mac version support them?).

    I'm not an IE user, i stick with MozillaFirebird, but i'm a web-developer who really wants to use PNGs. Due to IE's crappyness, you can't use PNG's with any alpha stuff as they go really screwy, but look amazing in Moz based browsers and pretty much every other modern browser. Ok, back to the point:

    i found this link which fixes the problem! It's a chunk of javascript you can stick in any page that uses PNGs, and it fixes them for you so they display as they should, alpha leves and all. It also doesn't cause any other anomolies in other browsers.

    Note: it only works on pngs that are called in <img> tags, not on background images of table cells/divs etc.

    Just thought i'd share my find with the people here who haven't found it already.

    Cool, but that has been going on for a while... IE 4.0... :eek:

    And 10K signatures aren't enough?

    Um... is your link correct? It's going to the Mozilla Firebird page as well, and I don't see any JavaScript there other then the news display.
