The person who posted the message you refer to does have a version of
mapplet that supports PNG. He had to use a 3rd party class library for
support. I believe he will provide the code (I don't have it here).
option would be to require users to use a new version of Java. I
most recent versions support PNG natively. Of course that will require
use of a plugin on the client side.

I was looking at your mapplet code and found it does not support PNGs.
Neither does DM Soln's Rosa applet.
Searching through the list archives, I found the following message from
I have a version of Steve's mapplet that does support PNG. Currently,
working finding a preprocessor that will help make the PNG mapplet
available to everyone.
If you would like, I could forward to you the PNG libraries and
source code. All you would need to do is compile the source and put
class files in a web accessible directory.

could you, or someone else, shed more light on this? Is there a version
either of these Java applets that does work with PNGs? if not, what
take to compile that support in?
