Description rememberthedot 2007-12-24 20:35:31 UTC
Please move the PngFix code from to IEFixes.js. The code has become highly stable and flexible, and can be disabled on any wiki by adding "window.PngFixDisabled = true" to Mediawiki:Common.js.

Moving this fix to the main IEFixes.js has two advantages:
1. Decreased load time for English Wikipedia users who are not using IE
2. The fix would be applied on all wikis, avoiding the need to manually copy it to each one's Common.js

Feel free to change "PngFix" to "pngFix" and "PngFixDisabled" to "pngFixDisabled" if this better matches your naming conventions. I doubt very many users (if any) actually set PngFixDisabled, so it wouldn't cause many problems.

The IE6 fix is now at :

It can probably replaces fixalpha() in IEFixes.js
Comment 2 Guillaume Paumier 2009-12-31 00:51:17 UTC
This piece of code seems to fix the issue reported in bug 234, so I'm going to merge these two. Feel free to undo this change if the assessment was erroneous.
