    Hi,
    i´m display links with a hover-effect. I use -moz-opacity and the ms filter
    alpha(opacity). Now, i need to do this with semi-transparent png Images. No
    problem in all browsers except in the IE (up to 7).
    Is this still a "bug"?

    Thanks much
    Matthias

    It wasn't ever a bug, it was just unsupported.
    It has now been added to IE7.
    It will not be retrofitted to < IE 7

    Hi Dean ,
    i´m loading the png´s for ie>=5.5 over css with the alphaimageloader-filter.
    this is supported - but i don´t know how to add the opacity to it
    sure? in my case the result is better than ie6, but still no
    alpha-transparency when i´m load a png normal over the img src. FF make´s it
    nice. so, i must use the alphaimageloader also on ie7 to get a a+ result

    remark: i have "switched" the problem. now, i use gdi+ to transform the
    image "on the fly" and make it lighter. But this was not what i want...

    Does nobody know how to combine the alphaimageloader with the alpha(opacity)
    filter?

    regards
    matthias

    The point is that you DON'T use the alphaImageloader.
    It is all done natively using the standard HTML stuff.any old "PNG fix"
    scripts/code should be disabled in IE7 as they WILL cause problems and
    worse results.

    sure, i use it...
    i think, without this little rest of compatiblity to older versions the ie
    will die... btw - this "png fix" is a microsoft one. why should it disabled
    in a newer version of a product. today you need a hand full css to make a
    website for all browsers - and then 10 hands full of fixes for the ie.

    but this (the displaying of png´s) was not the main question. the only
    question was: is it unable to combine filters. (in this case the
    alphaimageloader AND the opacity)
    If this is true i have to find another solution. Else i have a mistake in my
    script

    thanks for your help
    Matthias
