PNG for every browser EXCEPT MSIE

Hello.

I have two versions of the image 'balloon.png'.

The .PNG looks better but it does not work properly on MSIE because it has an alpha-transparency.

So I want to serve the UGLY .GIF to MSIE users but the .PNG to everyone else.

Right now I use this to display the PNG version:
                    document.writeln("<img src='balloon.png' onmouseover='fix(\""+j+"\");'>");


I need something like this, but my syntax is off...

                    if (browser==MSIE) imgExt=".gif" else imgExt=".png"
                    document.writeln("<img src='balloon."+imgExt+"' onmouseover='fix(\""+j+"\");'>");


Any ideas  how?

Thanks!

By the way, you CAN use a PNG in IE with a little simple scripting.

This tells all:

Thanks!

I accepted you first comment as the answer because it directly answers my question, but I will be using the IE PNG fix as a solution.
