View Full Version : Graphic designers want print like html - a fading Table Border

They want a table border to fade from black to clear. I am stumped unless we use a gif. Anyone have a native html/css idea?

hmmmm well you are going to have major problems here, your problem is going to be finding a way to have black transfering to transparency, this would mean alpha transparencies and you will ahve major problems in IE with that.

the only way I can think of is a 24bit PNG file that fades black to clear and then set a DIV to have that as its background and then have the table in the div.

my honest advice is to say it can't be done, the time you are going to spend trying to find a way of doing this (and probably fail) will far outweigh any profit you could gain.

thats my oppinion anyways guys what you think
