It’s the strangest thing. I’ve been able to get this to work before, but for whatever reason, I cannot get my PNGs to render properly in IE. If you see this in-progress site,, the exact same method is used to good effect. In fact, I just cut-and-pasted from that project to this one. The only thing different are the URIs and the graphics themselves.

Which got me to thinking, perhaps it has something to do with the way in which the PNGs are processed. I reprocessed them, still not good.

Ugh. I didn’t think I’d ever be happy to say, “I cannot wait for the next version of IE to come out,” but alas…

    Heh, yeah, I’ve given up on PNG for awhile. In most instances, I’ve found a way to use GIF for transparency and rarely have trouble. Shadows are the tough part. I’ll bet most of your PNG stuff could be done with GIF if you’re creative about it. I’m writing up a thing from the AIGA conference I was at this past weekend in which they talked about specifying colors to be transparent. It has already helped me a bunch in making transparencies. I’ll try to finish that and get it up in the next day or so.

  • Awesome. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be watching for your post.
    It really doesn’t make sense, though. I mean, when I did it for Artisans’ site, it works TOTALLY fine. So, what gives for this site?? It’s befuddling, nonsensical, and downright postal-izing. :-) grrrrrr. I really don’t like IE… I may have mentioned that before.
