To be frank, you should not use a render engine such as IPInfo's Netrenderer or a tool like IETester. The smartest thing to do, it simply download and/or install a WinXP installation. The best way to do this is to download a stripped Windows XP off the internet which isn't illigal, install this onto a downloaded, legal copy of Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007 (don't forget to install the SP1 update) and then check out the website. This, of course, only applies if you have Vista or XP with IE7 or higher. The standard, standalone version of WindowsXP (excl. SP1) provides you with the most noobish and utterly useless IE6.
Aside from this, there are numurous fixes that apply to transparency in IE6. I must've read over 20 articles on how to apply it, and yet I am not sure on which version to use. The TwinHelix version provides by xenon should do the trick just fine, but it's not the most perfect way. All and all, I like to avoid using transparency. If you do, make sure it doesn't have gradients. If not, you can simply use GIFs.
I keep praying for the day to come that everyone bans IE6 and all computers still using it just break down and explode. IE6 is a webdesigner's/webdeveloper's worse nightmare. Mozilla eat your heart out.
