#1636: MythWeb In IE shows red-cross/missing image icon on most images
 Reporter:  ciaran+mythtv at gmail.com  |       Owner:  xris
     Type:  defect                   |      Status:  new 
 Priority:  trivial                  |   Milestone:  0.20
Component:  mythweb                  |     Version:  head
 Severity:  low                      |  
 Only a minor fault really, but on my setup (Apache does multiple things so
 Mythweb isn't aliased to root) the alpha blending behaviour that expects
 an absolute path to have mythweb as the root falls over and causes the
 images to display incorrectly [that ubiquitous red-cross appears].

 Please find attached a small patch that fixes that (at least for me!) and
 also slightly  changes the CSS on the welcome page to make the display a
 little more pleasant in IE.  (specifcally states the height of the box to
 30em, rather than just setting the min-height to 30em, could cause
 problems in the future however if modules overflow? )

 Note this patch also partially fixes ticket #1317, I didn't do the
 complete fix because it appears to be a world of pain, existing code
 relies on border-color: transparent; but good ol' IE doesn't support this
 standard CSS ;).  The best work-around I could find involves Javascript
 and was a larger change than I have time to do right now, sorry.
