Minor Changes

Feb 20, 2007 in Dev

Those of you reading the site in Internet Explorer, 20% according to Mint, can now see the site as it was intended to be seen. I had run across a few hacks to make transparent PNG files (that’s an image format for the web) work in INternet Explorer 5.5+, but none worked as well as I liked. Using this new method, all the sites icons are now visible to IE users.

This came across the feeds the other day, and I gave it a shot. There’s a slight hit in performance on some pages, with page load times getting a bit longer, so I’m not sure how long I’ll leave this set this way. 

I’d like to give a shout out to the icon creator, Mark James, whose Silk Icons are in liberal use throughout the site. These are amazing little icons, full of color and detail. Really great work Mark!
