Currently if an element is set to translucent via filter:alpha(opacity=foo), PIE will not match that and instead display as fully opaque. We need to add logic to the RootRenderer to match the opacity of the foreground element.
any news on this one?
Suggest working from the standards css 'opacity' property, rather than parsing 'filter:alpha(opacity=foo)'. Even though 'opacity' is not a css3 property, better to enable the standards. I expect you're already thinking this way.
Will this help with combining opacity and background-image (png) transparency issues in IE - automatically providing the benefits of -pie-png-fix: true; if there is a background image on the element as well? Nice.
