hi there,

to make it short:

style="filter:Alpha(opacity=100, finishopacity=0, style=1, startx=100, starty=0, finishx=0, finishy=0) for ie

any chance to do something similar with -moz-opacity for mozilla?

Hi

The filters are IE only technology.

Mozilla has the XUL code which should allow similar types of coding, but that isn't implemented yet, I don't think.

Instead, the Gecko engine supports png opacity, so you would have to use an image (not supported by IE).

Yeah I figured so, was just hoping for something but I suppose I should've known that no one else wants to follow in MS footsteps on this Tongue

Which is a great shame because the filters are really cool.

Maybe MS owns the technology and won't give it up.

They may be neat, but for all static image purposes you have support for alphachannel enabled PNG in every NORMAL browser.

Try to nest one div in another both with different background PNG with some funny alpha channel, and you will see how nice it looks.

IE is of course far behind and cannot even keep the color scheme intact, bt Mozilla, Opera and FireFox can handle it without problems.
