This looks great in every browser I tested with the exception of IE6. IE6 still displays the PNG, but without the transparency. While this isn't ideal, it's acceptable as it's not broken and I benefit from the nice effect everywhere else.
Help those poor people still using IE6 by giving them a reason to update already.
I use transparent PNGs on this site for the book cover photos, the photos of Derek, and the background tiles of the text boxes. Without the use of transparent PNGs here I would have likely needed to develop this site in Flash.

Btw, good flurry of recent posts.

Great point Kit, thanks. I’ve seen that around also.
It looks there are a variety of flavors for that. Here’s one for additional reference: http://www.twinhelix.com/css/iepngfix/
I’ve tried out that solution this morning on http://www.derekvreeland.com and it works well on regular images as well as background images. I noticed that if the page loads slowly I can see the background present for a second before the transparency takes effect.
Awesome, thanks again Kit.
