IFrame transparent backgrounds in IE

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Michael Laplante, May 27, 2006.

  1. This is probably old news to the experienced types here, but I just came
    across this ref:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/dhtml/overview/inlinefloatingframes.asp#transparency

    The ALLOWTRANSPARENCY attrribute is not strict HTML so I guess you'd have to
    set doctype to transitional to pass validation? I left the doctype as strict
    and both IE and FF rendered it without problem.

    I think somebody in the last few weeks here was looking for a solution to
    the issue of white backgrounds in iframes in IE where they default to
    transparent in Firefox. I know I've been looking for this solution for
    awhile.

    Hope this helps the OP.

    No. It's not in Transitional either. You'd need to use a custom DTD.
