GO FORTH AND HOVER-CRAFT As I mentioned before, this solution has affected the way I think about creating the asset graphics for a design. We can use opacity to control how the graphic appears by default, blending it into the background—then applying a different value for :hover, :focus, and :active states, tying it together with a transition for browsers that support it. Keep the opacity property in mind next time you’re creating hover treatments for hyperlinked images in your own designs. You’ll save time, bandwidth, and the unnecessary complexity that other solutions might require.

Normally I wouldn’t suggest using filter, as (unlike vendorprefixed properties) it’s not part of any proposed standard. Also, use of the filter property can bring increased performance overhead depending on where or how often it’s used. It’s a hack—but it provides a means to an end. So long as you understand this, and perhaps quarantine the use of this property to its own stylesheet or else carefully comment it, then it can be a viable method. Microsoft. Microsoft. » Alpha(Opacity=60)"; /* IE 8 hack */ filter: alpha(opacity = 60); /* IE 5-7 hack */ } The syntax is similar, with a value of opacity passed through IE’s alpha filter.

Here’s where specifying a backup color comes into play. When using RGBA to assign color values, it’s good practice to specify a solid color first, as a fallback for browsers that don’t yet support RGBA. 7); } Browsers that do support RGBA will override the solid color (a light gray #ccc in this case), while browsers that don’t yet support RGBA yet will ignore the RGBA rule. So, an important point to remember: specify solid backups for RGBA colors in a separate rule that appears before the RGBA rule.
