png files with black background in Firefox
Works in IE only

 6:59 pm on Feb 27, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hi all,
I created a website in Frontpage 2003 (im an HTML novice). Upon preview, it looks perfect, in EI its also perfect. When i check Firefox, the png files are not clear and have black backgrounds..also the jpg files are fuzzy.

I am using the most up to date versions of the browser, and checked my quicktime MIME and its correct. What am i missing?

I am so, so tempted to say "What you're missing is nine years of editorial commentary on Frontpage."


Get brave. Open that sucker in a text editor and start trying to decipher it. HTML is intended to be user-friendly. Unlike most computer languages you could name, HTML is designed to respond to mistakes by ignoring them and carrying on. ("The boss didn't really just make a rude noise did he? No. Impossible. We'll just pretend it didn't happen.")

Or get yourself an up-to-the-minute WYSIWYG editor or find a nice CMS. Just don't let it take your Frontpage file and re-translate into its own language-- even if it says in big print "Sure, no sweat, I can do that". The results will not be pretty.

HTML is fun, though. Once you get used to making mud pies you'll never go back to packaged mixes again.
