Thank-you for your tech support.
It's very interesting about IE. What is even more interesting is that
on my MAC using 4 different browsers : Safari, IE, Firefox, and
Netscape, the PNG background is white.
As an aside, I used another free clipart image taken from another
site, a transparent gif of stars, and on the 4 browsers on my computer
the stars blended perfectly with the cream background. On some other
people's computers, white edges appeared against the cream-colored
background. I decided to abandon the cream background, (not a web safe
color), and go for white. Then the stars blended in to the background.
The worst experience was looking at the site on an old computer in IE
with a jalopy of a monitor. the light cream background became a
darkish drab sepia and every possible defect showed. NONE of this
shows on my computer. Maybe MACs are smarter!
thanks again and good luck with your great project,
If I was a graphic artist I would consider contributing to it.
