Use of png images is the default for licensing reasons.
You can easily configure, at installation time, to use .gif images
instead. See the installation instructions for how to do this.

Not all browsers display transparency in .png images.
First you should determine whether this is the problem by viewing in
other browsers.

The lack of support for transparency in browsers is annoying,
but beyond our control. If your documents always have the same colour
for the background (e.g. white) then ensure that you always make
the images with a white background:


I have a set of PNG icons that have been edited to have a white background.
This is quite easy to do with standard graphics software.

Hope this helps,
