    Microsoft vs Sheepy - Episode II: PNG Transparency

    Just sent this to Microsoft:

    Hello,

    I am having problems with PNG pictures.

    My friends using Linux and Mac OS can all see transparent backgrounds on PNG images, however, when I view them in Internet Explorer with Windows XP (latest and updated) it just shows a grey background.

    How can I get the transparent background?
    What do we all think the answer is?

    It's a feature, not a bug.

    That feature has been in IE for soooooooooooooo looooooong.

    Why not ask them why you can't view MNG or JNG images without a plugin or why CSS does not work right or why they haven't upgraded VML to SVG in IE yet...

    You know the hard questions...

    There answere:

    "Of course it is transparent, you just got to set the background color of the page to the same color as the PNG."

    This is Microsoft we are talking about here, a feature is a bug.

    Best to start with the easy ones first, johnie

    I think that they'll suggest you use Microsoft Paint for all your image editing needs, and it supports all the formats that everyone who works at Microsoft has ever come across.
