    Png transparent in IE

    Forgive me for asking a question like this.. but i have surfed and searched and tried and cant seem to find a solution to the IE 6 no transparent PNG. Im after something that validates and still works.

    I have tried gifs but my image is 6 dots in different sizes which loose their smooth edge when saved as a transparent gif..

    Thanks

    No need to ask for forgiveness. Just try this handy solution out from TwinHelix. http://www.twinhelix.com/css/iepngfix/

    You will have to use a conditional comment to make it work though. (Just need to target IE 6 and earlier, so "if lt IE7" should do it.)

    No problem. Version 2.0 Alpha 3 is the one you want to use. Sorry I forgot to mention that yesterday.

    Never had that come up when I visited the site or used the script.
