When printing a transparent .GIF over another picture, the transparency does not work properly. As an example, navigate to: http://www.e-mart.net/printbug.htm and note the button in the lower right hand corner. This button is covered by a transparent .GIF file. On screen, it properly hides the transparency of the .GIF image. However, if you print this file, you will notice a white block over the button in the lower right where the .GIF is not properly "transparified" (is that a word?) I tested this on the WIN32 platform (WinNT) with release M11. I also tried it with three different printers (both laser and inkjet) to see if that would make a difference.
Some printers do not support the way we do the blitting. Will look into doing this another way.
