    Making .PNG's work with IE.
    Mozilla, netscape etc, can all read these files properly but IE doesn't recognize the transparency that PNG's can have. Does anyone know the line of code that's needed to make IE recognize it?

    Thanks.

    If only it were that simple

    We used to try to use hacks and workarounds to make PNG's work properly in IE, but we spent so long doing it, that these days we simply create sites that can be used without them.

    That said, there are a number of workarounds on the net, and this is one that we have used successfully in the past:

    I hope that helps!

    I appreciate the tip jeremy; I had actually found a way to make it work using a site called youngpup.net. Basically he wrote a .js to load before the page does, that allows IE to interpret PNG files.

    Works like a charm.
