This style property is not supported for iframes, and based on CSS2 specs all elements should support it. Netscape 6 doesn't render the background of the iframe transparent. Ex. iframe.html <html> <body bgcolor="black"> <iframe src="framesource.html" width="400" height="400" frameborder=0 allowtransparency="yes" style="background-color:transparent"></iframe> framesource.html <html> <body> <p> this is a test
Please try a recent Mozilla build. I believe that this has been fixed since NS6 was released.
I actually looked at it with the new build (2001032319) and I am still not seeing it behave correctly. Maybe I am using the tags wrong, is there another on/off switch for transparancy or just based on the style tag?
Hmm. you're right. This seems to not be working properly (tested with the 2001-04-11 Linux build). Reassigning and status -> new. Will attach a testcase.

The iframe should have a black background... it does not. ccing hixie for standards explications if any.
the iframe should have black background, or if the parent window has an image as background, it should be see through...... transparent. The IE implementation on IE 5.5 uses an extra tag, but is a good example of what is supposed to happen. http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/properties/allowTransp arency.asp
The iframe is painting with the correct (black) background color, but when the document loads it flashes to white. Something in the document load is causing it to repaint to white. If you use <iframe style="background-color:red !important"> it does the same thing... it initially draws red but then flashes to white when the document loads. Hard to tell, is this related to bug 49779? (referenced in html.css on frame and iframe rules)

Looking at the testcase on win2k/2001020404 I see the flicker happening, but it doesn't go to white, it goes to my default window color - a middle grey. Don't know if this info helps, or of you cought it already.

some status info. a few days ago i bumped into this problem, too. (on 0.9.1) just downloaded moz 0.9.2/win2k (Build ID : 2001062815) and verified that the problem still exists. (displaying a white background)
Chnaging QA contact since it deals with iframe.

Marking as a duplicate of bug 50263. It shouldn't even be necessary to specify a transparent background, since the default value of background-color *is* transparent. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 50623 ***

It should be pointed out that "allowtransparency" is a Microsoft-proprietary HTML element attribute, and as such its' use is deprecated in favor of CSS "background-color: transparent". Implementing new proprietary extensions is counterindicated when a standardized method is available.
