PNG fix for IE 6 – finally one that works.

Posted on : 05-06-2009 | By : Andy | In : fun, tech


(Well, sort of).

I’ve been coding a new template for a new venture I’ll be embarking on over this summer break, and I wanted it to look all nice with alpha’d png images. IE6 hates those things.

Despite the fact that it probably won’t matter (most of my traffic these days is Firefox, and the direction I’ll be headed is for more tech-savvy and mac users), I hate leaving little things untended.

Some dude made it work. Nicely. Check it out if you’re frustrated with other solutions.

IE6 PNG fix
