Web Design Trends

Everyone knows that trends are what keeps things alive. Don’t try to make a new trend, unless you are well known. So, here are things that are common, and thus ‘trendy.’ Here are two trends that you should put on your site:

  2. OK, now there is the matter of transparencies. The new trend: Transparent P.N.G’s! Here is a website:

    Of course there is an error with IE. You need the ‘AlphaImageLoader.’ Here is an example:

    <head></head>
    <body bgColor="blue">
    <!-- This DIV is the target container for the image.  -->
    <DIV ID="oDiv" STYLE="position:absolute; left:140px; height:400; width:400;
         filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(
         src='image.png', sizingMethod='scale');" >
    </DIV>
    </body>
    </html>
