I just go through converting all of the rank images, which I stole like a vagrant sleeze from the US Army web site (THANKS webdev Chain of Command!), into tranparent .png files so that they appear cleanly against the site background in the Intro and the biography.
I could have written a script, but doing them all by hand only took 87% of the time that would have required.
Anyway, they are done and the bio main and intro templates are updated to use them,
The TEST bio on Beau Gustaffson is the first one that has the trans png in the main.
