    The real answer is no, but you can get kinda close. You can do this with a PNG file, however IE screws them up of course.

    How will this image be implimented: navigation link, background, pretty image?

    it's gonna be a background.
    i might have the same colour of the table i use to put my img, but it's not really logically right. a blank pixels in png became grey in ie. is it normal thing?

    Because IE doesn't handle those correctly yes. Check it out in Mozzilla.

    Gifs cannot really be "semi transparent". Its really a binary value that decideds if they are transparent or not. You can space out the transparencies to give the appearance that it is a gradient.

    I'm sorry I'm not more help, but without useing some code in your Style sheet, you really cannot accomplish this. And from what I understand, only Opera and IE have transparency elements that they recognize.

    If you are mearly trying to create a neat background fade, you are best to just make it into the image for now.

    Do you have a link to this page?
