I'm having a little trouble with images and would like to use alpha mapped PNG's for topic icons. Would this work? I'm getting a white ghost image over shadows in my alphamapped gif's.

I'm having trouble attaching an image so here is a link:

Geeklog doesn't care which format the topic icons have.

The only problem may be that Internet Explorer still can't handle PNGs that use alpha-transparency. There's a piece of JavaScript that you could add to your site's header.thtml to work around the problem, though. Google is your friend ...

bye, Dirk
