Home Forums Other IE8 Transparency Issues Re: IE8 Transparency Issues


I think it will depend on how the opacity is being coded and added, I believe IE8 doesn’t support the rgba property, so something like this;

background: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);

Will not be supported, however when you code it like this;

background: black;
opacity: 0.5;

It will work, but it adds an overlay to the whole element, so if you had text on the image also, it would make that darker too.
