I have just noticed not 1/2 hour ago, that for the last 5 months or so months (I don’t really know how long) our main logo was displaying badly in Internet Explorer.

PNG format with alpha transparency in IE5.5 and up, was rendering with a light blue background. I can’t believe it.

I was positive that I checked IE before going live but it was so long ago that I’ve now forgotten. And no one mentioned it to me.

Talk about egg-on-face.

You always say it can’t happen to you until it does.

There are several fixes for this out there here’s one of them.


Oh by the way, I didn’t bother with any fixes, I just changed from PNG to GIF because I could with a standard white background on our pages.
