    Site header buggy in IE

    When I try to view my site in Internet Explorer the header (dark panel under the header actually) displays all funny.
    The image is no longer transparent and dropped down and the background repeats, anyone have any idea why this is happening?
    Looks fine in Firefox.

    Thanks,

    IE6 doesn't support alpha transparency in PNG images natively. There are workarounds.

    You're also experiencing IE's doubled float-margin bug.

    P.S. Next time please specify which version(s) of IE you mean.

    P.P.S. Why are you using fixed positioning on the footer?

    Thanks for the advice.
    I am using fixed position so the footer is not messed up on the about me page.
    Is there another way I should be doing this?
