    javascript pop up if using IE 6?

    Is this possible where it recognizes it and tells them the site will not be viewed properly and redirect them to a new page or close it out?

    Code:
    <!--[if lte IE 6]>
        <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=msie.html">
    <![endif]-->
    That wil cause problems on some servers but if it works for you then you're good.

    Why not take just make your site work in IE6 so you won't have to do this? People here at webdeveloper.com are very knowledgeable about making it work in all browsers, why is your site incompatible to begin with?

    The only reason I suggest this is because you are removing the possibility of ~26&#37; of all internet users to view your site (W3Counter browser stats)

    well because the transparency in a png DOES not show in IE6 and it looks like trash. To much white borders. IE6 is obsolete, and if people are still using it they need to update their browsers lol

    There are lots of sites out there that use PNG transparency and still cater to people using IE6, just with a little extra effort. The best fix I have found for single png images, or non-repeating backgrounds is to use the server side solution:

    IE6 may be obsolete, but so is your website (define: obsolete - Almost or entirely absent; indistinct; not fully developed) to the 26&#37; of WWW users who are still using it.
