Hey folks. I have pngs as backgrounds and I was wondering if someone with IE7 could take a look at www.jontakiff.com/portfolio2 and see if the links works as designed.....thanks...!

I am pretty sure that only IE6 messes with .pngs

I could be mistaken. Don't have IE to test it out.

Hello johnnyblotter,
That's very nice. Seems to work perfectly in IE7 and FF2 on a Vista box.
I was glad to see you made the a (width: 92px;height: 92px;) to include the whole circle as a link.

Does this work in IE6? I couldn't seem to find ie.css to see if it might and I don't have a box with IE6 running right now.

Thanks excavator. It can't work it IE6 because the links are positioned, which means none of the png hacks will work. So I just used conditional comments and sent gifs for IE6. The edges are a little ratty, which is unfortunate, but that's how it goes...

I could be mistaken. Don't have IE to test it out.You are mistaken. Win. Internet Explorer 7 still has an issue that results in PNG‐format images displaying with slightly darker colors than they do in other browsers.

For example, take a look at my avatar here or at http://www.codingforums.com/showpost.php?p=645793&postcount=10. In WIE7, you will notice that youíre able to see the square boundary of the image due to an inexact match with the forumís background color. (You have to look carefully because the difference is slight.)

This is only an issue if youíre color‐matching though, which is not the case here. I checked the images used for the links and theyíre not affected by this issue anyway.

In IE6, there is a "dish-water grey"

Au contraire, I see nothing of the sort on my IE7, Arbitrator (I even zoomed in to 400% to double-check, to no avail.)

You sure this wasn't just an issue with the beta/RC?

Au contraire, I see nothing of the sort on my IE7, Arbitrator (I even zoomed in to 400% to double-check, to no avail.)Iím using a tuned LCD monitor; it wouldnít surprise me if you couldnít see the difference on a CRT monitor or, perhaps, a poorly tuned LCD. Itís also possible that the Vista version of WIE7 is different. Or perhaps thereís just an unknown factor.

Below is an image that notes the difference. This particular difference is subtle; Iíve seen more pronounced differences before.

For comparison, in Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.11 and Opera 9.25, I see the color #ebebeb used for both the image and forum. In Safari 3.0.5 (Windows beta), I see the color #ececec used for the image and #ebebeb used for the forum. The Safari difference is more subtle than that of WIE though; I had to use a color tool to confirm that the colors were actually different.


You sure this wasn't just an issue with the beta/RC?Yes. I use the latest version of each browser so much so that I even went through the trouble of updating WIE7 for a minor change in the browser defaults (no rendering changes or security fixes). [1]

Image doesn't come up.

Using an LCD monitor 1024x768x75, XP Home. Colours're perfect (compared with the main LCD I use downstairs).

(I checked with a color tool; &e9e9e9 for your image, &ebebeb for the forum. It's not visible to my eye, though =).)

[lowered brightness to 0 and I can slightly see it.]
