You must be right. I learned that IE (which I use) doesn't support PNG alpha
channel correctly. I also tested that some other browsers (Opera, Mozilla)
do. But... I can turn the GIF badge with software like Paint Shop Pro into a
PNG file displayed correctly by my IE. I also noticed that CSS (what I
mentioned already) and also XHTML badges generally looks good. So why
HTML4.01 cannot?
