    Hi there,

    does anybody have an idea how to get rid of the dirty
    download-print-and-email-button that appears in IE 6.x everytime the cursor
    is put over a (a slightly bigger) .jpg or .gif file?

    greatings, Man Ray

    you could always RTFM or:

    tools > internet options > advanced > multimedia > [ ] enable image
    toolbar

    let me know if any of the words are too big for you.

    Don't use IE6. Or configure IE6 not to display it.

    Remember that your visitors who do use IE6 will be used to this
    toolbar and may even want to use it, so removing it isn't very
    user-friendly.

    There are two ways to remove it:
    1. <meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no">
    2. (won't validate) Add galleryimg="no" to the <img> element.
    (Obviously galleryimg="yes" can be used to get the toolbar back if
    you've switched it off for the whole page the meta tag.)

    don't **** around with the visitors browser, if you don't want it then
    change _your_ browser settings.

    Twit.

    The OP wasn't specific. This being a HTML writers forum, I would have
    assumed he meant "via my page", not from the browser itself.

    <meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no" />

    Why is that fucking around? Better not change any fonts either then!
    Leave everything at default. I think the only one fucking around here is
    you :p

    its part of the GUI, not part of the page. the author can do whatever
    they like on the canvas area to **** with the visitor but the rest they
    should leave alone because _it does_ cause people to leave and never
    return.

    > Better not change any fonts either then!


    i always recommend only specifying the generic family so the author gets
    the look they want but the visitor gets their preferred font for that
    family.

    Not the same. IE6 has an option to "ignore font styles specified on
    web pages". It doesn't AFAIK have an option to "ignore fucking about
    with my UI specified on web pages"

    MS added the featyure without being asked. They provided a documented
    mechanism for turning it off if it looks messy on your page. It can be
    bloody confusing too if you have images layered in some form... for
    example, text content over a background image that is placed using
    CSS... and you get a save image icon on your text!!!!

    How dare you dictate what font family. That's part of the UI. Leave it
    for the UA to decide.

    my proxy searches for:

    <meta http-equiv=("|)\#(expires|Last-Modified|pragma|cache|imagetoolbar)\#

    and replaces with:

    <KilledByProxy ignore=\@

    so

    <meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no">

    ends up on the page as:

    <KilledByProxy ignore="imagetoolbar" content="no">

    *giggles from the bleachers*

    Brucie's right about the browser. It is generally bad practice to do
    things like change the browser's size or behavior. Certainly disabling a
    menus falls under the category of "malicious coding".
