Transparent IFrames under IE

March 2017



I am creating a site and I'm using iframes. I want them to be transparent.
Everything works on Firefox for the best, but in IE7, the background appears, even though I have put:
  • allowtransparency="true" 

Here is the complete code for my iframe:
<iframe style="left: 228px; position: absolute; top: 347px; background-color: transparent" name="contenu" src="accueil.htm" frameborder="0" height="655" width="573" allowtransparency="true" >

How could I do to make it appear transparent in IE too?


I've noticed that having a doctype 1.0 in pages called by iframe, transparency works in IE

Instead of :<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> , use <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN">.

Thanks to feuch for this tip.
