This is only generally related to the Combine, but I didn't think the question fit into any other forum...
On a SWC-related page I put together, I have a background image and a table which also has a background image.
The page background is a logo.
The table background is a transparent GIF that creates a 75% dither effect.
The point is, I don't want to completely obscure the page background, but I want a person to be able to see the table.
Now, everything works fine. The dither looks good. My trouble is that in IE, this effect significantly slows down page rendering. Resizing a window is sluggish, as is typing anything (into a text field).
Opera and Firefox do not suffer from this same sluggish behavior.
Does anyone have any ideas what the trouble could be?
The page is supposed to be exclusive, otherwise I'd post a link to it here. If I have the opportunity to make a sample page to show you the trouble, I will do so.
Okay, I'm using Netscape 8.0 Beta. It's based on Firefox's code. However, you can switch between "Netscape" rendering and Internet Explorer rendering. It does appear fine in the normal netscape mode, but yes, there is signifigant slowdown in IE. So, it's obviously not just on your end. Most likely just some poor IE coding.
