IE8 is out now, IE6 is 2 major revisions out (many years!), do we will still need to support it? If we keep supporting it, users will still continue to use it!
I understand what you are saying, but I don't want to be the one who says "upgrade or get out". It's a school website (as you can probably see) and I want as many people as possible to be able to use it without even having to think about upgrading.
I've tried all the fixes (TwinHelix, Supersleight etc) to no avail. I'm going to try swapping out the images for 8-bit PNGs as suggested, to see if that helps.
I'm not expecting it to be perfect in IE6, just usable.
"Many civil servants use web browsers as a tool of their trade," he told GC News. "They're as important as pens and paper. So to force them to use the most decrepit browser in the world is a rare form of workplace cruelty that should be stopped."
Couldn't agree more, however the cruelty doesn't stop at the user as many of you who are designers will know all too well.
I suspect this kind of madness doesn't only exist in the UK.
Things like this make me wanna pull all my hair out! ARGH!!!

You should try this above code or check out the 24ways.org website which gives you the complete guide on how to over come the png image issue in ie6, I think ie 6 does not support png very well also, most of the users are now using ie7 or above.
