Hello experts. I am having a problem with how IE is displaying a transparent button with text.
While every other up to date browser diplays my button properly IE is displaying it like this

Below is my CSS class of the button.

What am I missing here?
.buttonreplays
{
 	font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
  font-weight: normal;
  font-size: 12;
	text-align:right;
	color: #FFFFFF;	
	border:0px;
	cursor:pointer;
	background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0);
	filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#ff000000, endColorstr=#ff000000); 
	-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#ff000000, endColorstr=#ff000000)";		
}

check this cross browser background transparency code

.alpha60
                  {
                        /* Fallback for web browsers that doesn't support RGBa */
                        background: rgb(0, 0, 0) transparent;
                        /* RGBa with 0.6 opacity */
                        background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
                        /* For IE 5.5 - 7*/
                        filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#99000000, endColorstr=#99000000);
                        /* For IE 8*/
                        -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#99000000, endColorstr=#99000000)";
                  }

That's exactly what I am using if you read my code. It's working fine when it comes to divs and tables but it's not working with <asp:Button>.

I accidentaly found the solution!

I removed all the transparency properties and set the background property to a non existing image and it works in all browsers!
