Developer Notes

  1. ( Angles ) in Gimp you can resave the png to look OK on MS browser like this
    1. open png image
    2. right click on image, click on Image | Mode | Indexed...
    3. in the "Index Color Conversion" dialog leave the defaults and click OK
    4. do File | Save As
    5. in that dialog select box choose "Determine File Type" as PNG
    6. click OK
    7. in the "Save As PNG" dialog UNCKECK the option "Save Background Color"
    8. Click OK, you now have a MS browser OK looking PNG
  2. A final note, this may degrade the quality of the PNG, so sometime I leave the PNG unchanged but make a GIF image for MS browsers, and feed the good PNG to other browsers.
