    Every time I make a PNG file, every transparent part of it appears blue in Internet Explorer, but not in Mozilla. Take a look at this PNG. BTW, the transparency shows up in PSP and Photoshop

    This one is screwed up in IE:

    I'm using PSP to make this particular file, but I used PhotoShop as well, and had the same effect. Is there a setting I'm missing?

    Ehh...cause it looks too blocky. Only 256 colors... I guess It's just that I'm picky lol :D GIFs lack that polished-looking partial transparency.

    PNG is far superiour to gif ( reference: http://burnallgifs.org )
    Internet Explorer couldn't render one if its life depended one it though, so if you want it to look good in all browsers you're going to have to make a gif :(

    May aswell just use Mozilla as your browser, I do ;) it just supports more, PNG and XHTML for a start, two things which play a very large part of/in the web.

    Now how to import the favorites...Hmm...I think that's what turned me away last time. I have lots of favorites. Wouldn't you know it? Mozilla already did! Hurrah!! What a great browser.

    Well..that's very nice, but why should web-developers have to go to extra effort because Microsoft are inept.
    There code example is even invalid, tags and attributes are meant to be lowercase.

    Thanks PsuedoKiller! I would say it's a pretty reasonable facsimile. :) My gif I posted earlier was pretty blocky. I only wish MS would make PNGs work right.

    Speedy_B! Thanks a BUNCH for this link. I found a program called "The Gimp for Windows" from there. I don't care if The Gimp changes the IE business, but it does promise nine levels of compression for lossless PNG files, which are smaller thank JPEGS and doesn't have artifacts. It's like a perfect BMP! We shall see.
