    PNG Transparency. Another way?

    I am new to most of this, but hang with me .

    This is the site:
    http://www.sdhda.org/2004/index.htm

    In N it works perfectly. I have the PNG background. I have searched the net looking for, and trying, every PNG hack for IE I can find and only once I got it to work, and it then disabled all my links, and I couldn't get around it.

    I have a different css loading for explorer with a 2x2 transparent gif for the illusion of a transparent background. It makes the text look horrid.

    Can someone please, explain or point me in the direction of an explination that fully describes making a transparent background on a css div that will work in IE and not make my links unclickable!

    80% of our site users use IE. I want this design to work. Help!
    Thanks.

    semitransparent png? hmm
    Personally I have yet to find a failsafe method, so I'd create a pixel-perfect version, positioning the text over the 'semitransparent' bits of my background - put the semitransparent bits into a jpeg background image. Make sense?

    Not much contrast in the menu column is there?

    Mm. You gotta hate it, huh? I haven't checked the link yet, but I've noticed creating a checkerboard gif for IE sometimes works. What I mean is say it's a red & black checkerboard. The reds would be the color you want the transparency to be, and the blacks would be fully transparent. Not foolproof, but it kind of works.
