fav-arrow.png disrupts favourites menu background in IE6

It seems that the CSS transparent background attribute is not being respected in IE6 and fav-arrow.png is introducing a patch of paler grey in the favourite actions menu. A possible solution might be for fav-arrow.png to have its own background that is the same as the intended background image.

I think that's looking like you're describing because you aren't using 32bit colors in Windows.

I know if I boot up Windows in VMWare, it's set at 16bit by default, which causes anything with transparency to render a little bit weird.

Wanna post a screenshot?

For what it's worth, I am running with 32-bit colour. I'll add a screenshot.

This is because of the inability of IE6 to handle PNG images with alpha channel (it's a "last millennium" browser after all). It's a well known defect that can be fixed by patching it.

It's a well known defect that can be fixed by patching it.

You guys could just slap in the jQuery pngFix to fix most of the problems. But the sprite sheets will have to be excluded from the fix.

The AlphaImageLoader object cannot handle the background-position attributes. So using a png sprite sheet is impossible to work on IE6.

Been there, done that, got angry about it. :)
