Setting PNG as background for container layer!!


Recommended Posts

I've googled and googled and i just cannot get it to work in IE6 !! Im dying here! Help?!


My container div


margin:0 auto;
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='tallBG.png',sizingMethod='scale');


it's a simple background with drop shadows on each edge, and the transparent part well is not transparent in IE6. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.


Thanks 2 All who help.

IE6 does not support transparent pngs ... yeah, yet another "What were we thinking?" moment brought to you by Microsoft.


When I want to use a transparent png, I use the PNG for modern browsers, then make a duplicate graphic as a tranparent gif and use a conditional comment to parse it for IE6.


It doesn't look as good, but it is better than nothing.
