For years I was told and tried and confirmed the alpha channel is not supported on IE with a simple <img src="">.
Recently I decide to convert all my gif pictures to png. I used GIMP,
and (as expected) I lose transparency on IE.
But later I tried another tool, the gif2png by Eric Raymond,
surprisingly the created png still can display transparent area on IE
(I'm not sure if it is transparent area or alpha channel, most likely
just transparent area), although on some friends' IE the png is
undisplayable at all, but most Windows computers display the
transparency just fine. An example image is the logo on my homepage
my homepage: http://aliweekly.nease.net/
the image: http://aliweekly.nease.net/images/headline.png
I don't know the reason, can anyone brief me?
Can we add an option to GIMP to let it create the png that is
transparency-compatibile with IE?
