[Pat Murphy's Maze of Twisty Little Passages]

Web Standards?

My vote didn't count

The image on the right is a PNG, size 175 by 120, generated with the GIMP on a Linux system. It (the image) should be transparent, allowing the background to peek through the letters and flag.

Hmm. You seem to be using a browser that's not IE. Are you sure that image isn't showing up as transparent???

You seem to be using a browser that identifies itself as:

CCBot/2.0 (https://commoncrawl.org/faq/)

so if this is Mozilla, Firefox, Konqueror, Opera, w3m, or something else, that's cool! It's not cool if the image on the right with the flag really isn't transparent though; in that case, if you feel strongly enough about it, please feel free to use the feedback link below to tell me what browser and version you use, and we can try to figure out why transparency isn't working for you.

How'd you do this?

This page uses the server side include technology to figure out the HTTP_USER_AGENT string that your browser feeds to the web server. If the string MSIE is found in this, it shows one thing, and quite another otherwise.
