PNG Transparency. Another way?
I am new to most of this, but hang with me .
This is the site:
In N it works perfectly. I have the PNG background. I have searched the net looking for, and trying, every PNG hack for IE I can find and only once I got it to work, and it then disabled all my links, and I couldn't get around it.
I have a different css loading for explorer with a 2x2 transparent gif for the illusion of a transparent background. It makes the text look horrid.
Can someone please, explain or point me in the direction of an explination that fully describes making a transparent background on a css div that will work in IE and not make my links unclickable!
80% of our site users use IE. I want this design to work. Help!
semitransparent png? hmm
Personally I have yet to find a failsafe method, so I'd create a pixel-perfect version, positioning the text over the 'semitransparent' bits of my background - put the semitransparent bits into a jpeg background image. Make sense?
I just scratched it.
If you look, you can see I just went another route entirely.
STupid, frickin, fracking IE. Pooey.
Not much contrast in the menu column is there?
Mm. You gotta hate it, huh? I haven't checked the link yet, but I've noticed creating a checkerboard gif for IE sometimes works. What I mean is say it's a red & black checkerboard. The reds would be the color you want the transparency to be, and the blacks would be fully transparent. Not foolproof, but it kind of works.
