    PNG artifacts in IE8

    http://www.globalsquaremedia.com/

    There are artifacts when you hover over the billboards... the site was built using a lot of PNGs... is there a hack that allows IE8 to interpret PNG correctly? The site shows perfectly well in Opera and FF... why not IE8???

    PNG type has no relevance in that case. Both IE7 and IE8 render the PNGs correctly. It is rather a matter of JavaScript code. Or CSS. But it is hard to say what, as it is a Mickey Mouse JQuery JavaScript library there.

    Its the fade you are using. IE has always had issues with keep full transparency on pngs when you apply a fade effect to them. There really isn't a fix for it.

    There is a workaround, if I remember correctly: Don’t fade the image, fade a container of the image. Or something like that. I don’t remember exactly.

    Well, yes. Thus, what it looks like a limitation (fading an element will fade all the child nodes of that element) might be a solve, in this case.

    Well it *is* a IE problem... every other browser can handle the fade effect without issue... it's IE again that has issues, as usual. jQuery is a pretty good library, I'm not sure what you have against it.

    I still haven't found a fix yet, but I've made progress.

    I have nothing against jQuery, but against people who use it without serious reason, and without understand it.
