Works perfect in IE but in Netscape/Firefox it fuxors. The problem is
the transparent image overlays. The obvious approach would be to
split apart the overlaid images into 4 sections and just leave the
text area uncovered...however that would require at least a good 3 to
4 hours of work and...well I'd rather just set the text box on top,
loose the aesthetics and say to hell with the Netscape and FF users.

The only other thing I can think of is using the Javascript focus()
function...however even if the focus is put on the text box I'm bettin
it still won't work. Does anyone have any other ideas? Maybe
something that works like wmode?

Oh it's not really a problem it's just the way the two browsers
operate. In IE if you click on an image that has a transparent
section it'll focus onto whatever is beneath it, but in
Netscape/FireFox it treats the transparent section as if it were like
a solid pane of glass and won't focus on the text layer underneath it.
But then even if there were a way to put the focus on the text layer
it'd probably still be impossible to move the scroll bar since it's in
effect underneath a "pane of glass".

Ahhh, yup...doesn't change anything though.

div class='pos' id='image_map' style='left:645px; top:371px;


Similar to above, those IDs aren't being used to alter anything so it
shouldn't be a problem (although validators might see it as an error).

I've decided to just reconstruct the whole thing into partial
sections, it'll work that way in Netscape and FF, however my primary
motivation for doing it is that it'll reduce the overall file size to
one eight of it's current size (which is about 3.5 megabytes).
Altering the code isn't too bad, but converting all the images will
take me a couple hours...although I suppose I could throw together a
batch script to speed it up.

For some reason in Netscape and Firefox it puts in a bottom margin

Uh, the scrollbar shouldn't be an issue anymore I restructured the
whole thing, total site size is down to 804KB (the earlier version was
3.66MB).

The problem I'm running into now is how different browsers handle
stacked PNG alpha transparencies over like images to create an overlay
fade/fog effect...I think.

Maybe someone would like to try and explain this:
http://www.backwater-productions.net...xplainthis.png

An optical illusion is the best I can come up with for some of the
problems. I ~think~ I've gotten around it by altering the gamma on
the PNG files. For example the ones that are used in IE I've got set
at 51500 and that seems to work with ~most~ of them...except this one:
http://www.backwater-productions.net...es/annoyed.png

On that one I used like 59000 for IE and 51500 for Netscape and
Firefox. Also for the later two browsers I used 45455 for the gamma
on those and they seemed to turn out alright (except for the one
mentioned above)

....I have no idea why, I used the same image encoding methodology,
recheck it 6 times, emptied out the browser caches, checked it
again...maybe if it's really dark and purple...*shrugs*...that's what
I mean, there's no discernable pattern that I can make out. It just
doesn't make sense outside of maybe browser makers just REALLY fucked
up on how their shit handles PNG alpha transparencies and gamma
settings...and/or it's the product of an optical illusion...I suppose
it'd have to be both since otherwise I wouldn't get inconsistent
results between browsers. I also found some other strange
differences, like in Netscape if I used a REALLY light fade over a
dark image it seemed to blend perfectly, but then in Firefox it seemed
to transfer the gamma onto the bottom image and made that section look
uber bright..and then in IE it seemed to be about in the middle,
lightened it, but not a whole lot.

I'm curious though as to how other browsers and other operating
systems handle it, so if anyone has the time and wants to help
research this, please test the site:
http://www.backwater-productions.net...tform/cbstory/

Scroll through and check for any abnormalities. Abnormalities will
look like this:
http://www.backwater-productions.net...s/abnormal.png

This is what it should look like:
http://www.backwater-productions.net...es/perfect.png

If you find one a screen cap would really help, along with the
specific browser you were using and the operating system...and the
brand and model of your monitor and graphics card would also help,
although at this point I'm really praying to God that, that's not a
relevant factor cause if it is it's just gonna screw the whole thing
up. So far the results have been consistent on a Radeon AIW 9600
using a an NEC MultiSync P750 and a NEC MultiSync M500.

Third, your ability to encode images and determine the proper format

Your file was encoded in lossy JPG with the quality set to "uber shit"
apparently. This resulted in a crappy looking image with a file size
of 1.43KB, where as if you hadn't been an idiot, you would have chosen
a palette based PNG or GIF file, using optimized octree and setting
the max color to about 100, which would have resulted in this:
http://www.backwater-productions.net/_images/trash.png
Which is only 919 bytes. Of course if you weren't stupid you would
have cropped it down to just the image part, in which case you could
have gone down to as low as 890 bytes.

Feel free to continue being a stupid fucking drooler, Noodle Head,
it's amusing if nothing else to watch you try and bite at my heels for

Yeah that's a bit unavoidable unless I don't want the scroll bar to be
apart of the faded portion. It's not too bad on short sections, but
on longer sections where the bar gets real small it can be a bit of a
bother...mostly if you don't have a scroll mouse.

Woah, that's a bit off...*looks at code*...hrmmm...does Netscape on
the Mac not support PNG alpha transparencies? The scroll bar looks
like it's in the right place, it's just the arrow portions aren't
being covered by the semitransparent PNG top layers.
But in IE 5.1.7 both images and code is going bad. Here are 4 screenshots:

Ahhh, I can fix the image parts pretty easy, I just need to create a
third version for IE on the Mac (which supports the use of PNG alpha
transparencies without the use of DirectX filters) that's using the IE
specific image portions. Not sure what's goin on with the double
scroll bars though...I'm guessing IE on the Mac doesn't support the
CSS overflow property? I can do a workaround for that, I'll use a
table to create a buffer space around the text portion, rather than
relying on dual division layers (which I prefer to use).

On the whole...and no offense to Mac users or anything, but yer
browser options kinda...suck. I don't suppose anyone has got some
Safari screen shots? Surely Safari won't let me down!

I'm also wondering what it looks like on Konqueror for
Linux...probably severely screwed up, Konqueror is pretty backwards,
but at least Linux users can use like Firefox. With Opera I'm not too
concerned, that's mostly a dead browser, they're barely hanging onto
1% of the market according to the W3CSchools site stats. Since the
content is primarily text I'll probably make a semi-pure text fallback
version for Lynx users.

Oooh la la. Nobody cares.
Of course if you weren't stupid you would
have cropped it down to just the image part, in which case you could
have gone down to as low as 890 bytes.

Feel free to continue being a stupid fucking drooler, Noodle Head,
it's amusing if nothing else to watch you try and bite at my heels for
attention.

Oh, BTW, I saw the thread where you talked about how you got Paint
Shop Pro...seems a little...odd. I'm quite sure that whatever poverty
of a public education system you're attending would have told you
Photoshop was yer best bet...and last I checked I was the only one
running around A26 touting the wondrous merits of my lil 6 year old
version of Paint Shop Pro.
Second, when you attach an image to a thread,
make sure your idiot news browser is setup to NOT include the file
name in the subject, cause otherwise it fucks up thread continuity. Shows up fine here.
Why don't you just join a fuckin webbie board, I think that'd be more

Thread continuity. Nice ridiculous argument.
Yeah, yer definitely not a Netter.
Third, your ability to encode images and determine the proper format
to use is slap in the face to intelligence design, you drooling little
muppet fuck.

Your file was encoded in lossy JPG with the quality set to "uber shit"
apparently. This resulted in a crappy looking image with a file size
of 1.43KB, where as if you hadn't been an idiot, you would have chosen
a palette based PNG or GIF file, using optimized octree and setting
the max color to about 100, which would have resulted in this:

It starts out pretty PG, but in chapter 7 (soon to be added), a

This doesn't stop them from putting up interviews and other things that

I've seen your pages. You do the same thing every time. <iframe> is your
little buddy. Except you should probably be using the frameset DTD, you
don't have a lot of interactivity beyond click a button. Now granted the
background changes too, so you get some props for that, after all, you
make pretty pictures but I have like 12 links on a page, okay graphics
and people can do a search from it. I'm learning how to generate HTML
now and I'm starting to see how it's all fitting together. So pretty
soon the task of updating will become easier which means and I can make
more pages with a consistent look quicker. Conforms to W3C, works in any
browser. No further assembly required. Coding wise it's actually more
complex than your site. It's got a 3 column div layout and uses a style
sheet. You have a an iframe that you abuse the hell out of and a hacked
DTD. Pictures only carry you so far. People will consume everything in a
site then move on to another.
*snicker* How are you delusions holding up these days?
Hey, I figured out your browser testing problem but you're acting like a
twat so I'm not gonna tell you.

Oh, BTW, I saw the thread where you talked about how you got Paint
Shop Pro...seems a little...odd. I'm quite sure that whatever poverty
of a public education system you're attending would have told you
Photoshop was yer best bet...and last I checked I was the only one
running around A26 touting the wondrous merits of my lil 6 year old
version of Paint Shop Pro.
Photoshop was a hundred bucks more and to be honest, I like paintshop.
I'm not a professional graphic artist and it does a okay enough job to
handle what I need from it. Now, I won't rule getting photoshop in the
future out but for now, I think I'm set. There's always the GIMP too.
Second, when you attach an image to a thread,

Hey you're the one that gets laughed out of...er...I mean trolls
webforums, not me. Why should I lower myself just because even web
boards think you suck?
Thread continuity. Nice ridiculous argument.
Yeah, yer definitely not a Netter.


Excuse me? Who the fuck are you? Nobody, that's who. You're welcome.

Sure. But I'd been experimenting.

And oh, look at that, you're using PNG files...
Usually gives me the smallest size.
and you're not posting
images inline either.
I still do. If I want to show more than one thing at a time, I do.
I don't get it, Noodles, what are you too
fuckin high on yourself to admit yer wrong? Hell I'm a fucking

What have I fucked up? I think everyone knows I'm experimenting with
something new to me. I made that pretty clear in the original post.

Interviews or video files are naturally bigger, but even with that the
idea is to encode them for the best quality with the smallest size.
If they were treating their video the way you treat your images they
would be several hundred megs per and would overwhelm their servers to
the point where they wouldn't even be able to have that service. It
all counts, Cupcake and a potential employer isn't going to want to
hire someone with your attitude, they're going to want the best...and

hey, that's your problem, Kiddo. Maybe someday when you figure it the

runs my sites.

Why would I do that when I can use my own custom hacked DTD that

Sunshine...I do shit on my sites that you couldn't even fucking BEGIN
to comprehend. Or did you forget who has the ONLY perfect liquid
website prototypes in existence?

http://www.backwater-productions.net...atform/liquid/
http://www.backwater-productions.net/alt.2600/

That's pure code, Dumbass. Every image you see is resized,
reconstructed and placed on the fly by the hybrid PHP/Javascript
code...and it's completely custom you fuckin tard, there's no other
site on the whole of the PLANET that does what those two prototypes
do. And hey, all I gotta do is throw in a lil server side image
caching and create some can opener code and I can market the concept
as freely as I like...you can't though Noodle head...because as
fucking stupid as you are you can't even comprehend how the PHP code
is reconstructing PNG alpha transparent files...hell, yer dumbass
probably can't even comprehend the javascript placement and division
resizing code that you can actually access...of course, as downs as
you are you probably haven't even figured out what an external
javascript file is let alone how to open one...LOL...yer such a loser
kid.

Oh and hey, on those perfect liquid prototypes, try clicking on the
tops of the boxes...dynamic interaction Sunshine...and you don't know
how I did that either, do you? ^_^

In fact, there's a lot of things that you probably have NO idea how I
did...hell even on my main backwater site:
http://www.backwater-productions.net

Touch the frog with yer mouse, Stupid...now tell me how I coded that.
He, he, he...oh and the new downloads section with DVD style
interface, tell me how I coded that, Noodle Dick...what's the matter,
yer "education" comin up short? Typical half breed fuck, goes to
school thinkin he's gonna learn about computers...LOL. You don't go
to school to learn about tech, Stupid, you go there to get a magic
piece of fuckin paper so you can convince some no brained corp exec
that yer smarter than they are. Only dropouts and fools like you go
to school looking to LEARN. Cause really...if you can't learn it the

[quoted text muted]


WOW, style sheets, boy those are sure hard...um...what on your site
NEEDS a style sheet though? I mean, really. Do you even know WHY you
should be using a style sheet as opposed to inline styles? Oh BTW, a
lot of my sites use style sheets...just the parts that benefit from
them though.
