Try this

[code]<span style="filter:alpha(opacity=70);-moz-opacity:.70;opacity:.70;"> IMG HERE </span>[/code]

Opacity is wierd in different browsers, you might be using the wrong setting in the wrong browser.

hmmm, I'm not really sure now. I'm assuming you are using up to date browsers. I don't really think that there is much you can do.

Sure, The whole thing is a mess in IE! The text tables are shot way off the screen and it's just sad! I mean look at the  little input boxes at the top! So, aside from just the images, please, any suggestions on how to make it look better in IE would be greatly appreciated! To see what it is supposed to look like, open it is FF and that is exactly as it should look!! FF rules!

As a side note, I think we should invent a new virus that uninstalls IE from everyone’s computer and replaces it with FF! Making the web a better and safer place! (You know, it wouldn’t surprise me any if Microsoft is using FF on their boxes!)

If you want opacity in IE, you gotta set the position to absolute, and try to use their filters as descriped in http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/filter/filters.asp

[code]
<div style="position:absolute; filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(opacity='0.7');">
70% opacity
</div>
[/code]

If your site doesn't work in IE, you really gotta fix it. It's not because IE is better or FF is better, it's because IE have over 85% of the web users... which could be over 85% of your future customers or clients.

and Microsoft urge their employees to use alternatives to IE (like FF or Opera) to see what other people use and what can be added to IE in the future.
