Ok,

http://www.chrisvschris.com/wp/christine-says-honesty-is-the-best-policy/ in IE6

There are blue, pink and green backgrounds on different parts of the page... I thought these were all PNG24 files, does anybody have any thoughts on why the blue and the pink ones have the background while the green is transparent in IE6?

cstormer,

Because you use an IE filter (which is necessary to get PNG alpha transparency for IE) for the style for the Blog (green) section, but not for the Christopher or Christine sections:

 .blog { background-image: none; filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(enabled=true, src=http://www.chrisvschris.com/wp/wp-content/themes/vistered-little-1/images/default/blogbackground.png, sizingMethod=scale); }

Just find this in your code, copy it, assign the right style names and backgrounds, and it should work fine.

You do have some other IE-specific layout bugs too. Gotta love M$.

Cheers,
LHerrou
