View Full Version : DHTML Billboard Font Resolution

01-17-2007, 11:35 PM
First of all, I want to send big kudos to the designer of this script... It was exactly what I needed for my home page and the transitions add a nice touch. Thanks!

In reading through the other posts on this section, I was able to change the font, however, it is displaying as "low resolution" regardless of which font I use. Nothing I try manages to smooth out the font like the rest of my page.

It's not a big deal... I'm just feel particularly "Monkish" about it this afternoon. :rolleyes:

Any ideas?

It would help to link to your page and the script in question.

See this thread (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6) for the proper posting format when asking a question.

If memory serves and I understand your problem, you need to add a background-color to fix that.

If you need more help with this script or help in adding the background-color:

Please supply a link to the page here on Dynamic Drive where you got this script.

The script is on www.intranetconcepts.com/main.htm (http://www.intranetconcepts.com/main.htm)

You can view the source to see how I configured it... not many changes from the original script, which I downloaded yesterday from dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/dhtmlbillboard.htm (http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/dhtmlbillboard.htm)

Thanks for your help,

In the past, in IE 6 with this script, or at least in others using the alpha and/or the the blend filters, that displayed text in this odd manner, this has always solved the problem:

width: 100%;
font-size: 9pt;
font-family: Tahoma;
background-color: #EEEEEE;

Currently, due perhaps to the particular filters involved, or to that fact that I am now using IE 7, it doesn't take care of it.

Yeah, I just checked, it really wasn't even a problem that much in IE 6 except while the filter was actively transforming and, adding the background-color to the .billcontent class fixes that in IE 6. Must be an IE 7 thing, perhaps configurable in that browser's settings.
