"We've been using supersleight and haven't had PNG transparency problems. IE6 users might see a white block in the background of a PNG but it goes away as the page loads. I too would like to see IE6 go away forever."

"Sure it is... They'll upgrade eventually. In a specific and very non-pc way, this is a real chicken and egg thing. Do we develop for every browser that's out there (and so every new one and revision that appears) or do we stick with core…"
