I agree with Andres. I'm having a problem with how my horizontal menu is displayed in ie 8. Works perfectly in Chrome and Firefox. But in ie 8 the menu bar is a solid color. I played around with what Andres was saying about the alpha filter. I got the menu to display properly when I implemented the filter.

There are still alot of IE 8 users out there, so I would recommend that Artisteer fix this IE 8 problem

Another transparency problem comes within the rgba Information a= semi opacity. This wont work in IE8 on Windows XP. We can this solve with a little bit of math. IE8 has the possiblity for alpha gradients, and this is usable to write convert CSS to this older browser.

Convert To And From Rgba() And #ARGB

Artisteer 4 Beta 1 will not working background transparency with Windows XP Internet Explorer 8.

On example, to do that with code in CSS write

opacity:0.4; /* Artisteer own command*/

filter:alpha(opacity=40); /* For IE8 and earlier */

Because many users have windows XP and Bill Gates will not update the XP to IE 9, Artisteer blogs using tranyparency will loking poore on that.

My suggestion is for Artisteer 4, please implement the filter:Alpha variant
on the CSS files. On time, i must this do manually.

I think that many users will not change to windows 7/8 from XP, so the IE 8 will be used long times.

Hi Andres,

I have just completed a template. How do I do this adjustment that you imdicated.

I am new at html and CSS.
