is it possible to change the saturation of an image, using CSS? I understand that such an effect will not be very compatible - but I don't mind.

I'm just after something that would work in IE.

.5 = 50% , .7 = 70% and so on

<img src="" style="filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(opacity=.5);">

That seems to be opacity, and not saturation.
well I dont see that css can do that with css
but maybe PHP? I just dont know, this is something
Using Lakio's setup and this overview of filters:
brings me to the conclusion that what you ask is impossible. The BasicImage Filter can do a load of effects, like grayscale, colormasks, opacity and even rotation, but not saturation.
