Adding a PNG

You may recall that fairly early in the project, we added the image of the big flower to the design. That image file is a GIF89a with a transparent area (skip back to Figure 10.5 if you don't remember clearly how it looks). At the time, there was a brief mention that a PNG image would be a much prettier solution, and that we'd talk about it at the end of the project.

And PNG Means…?

PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics, and is usually pronounced “ping.” It's an image format that was devised in the early 1990s and became a W3C Recommendation in 1996 (http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-png-multi.html). Its intent was to be a patent-free and technically superior replacement for the GIF format.
