Transparentissue PNG is black in IE7

I have a hidden div with png backgrounds. When I unhide the div, the background shows up black instead of transparent. Please see attached image.

This works fine in firefox and I know that IE7 is suppose to support transparent png (which it seems to do half way because the original backgrounds are correct).

So far my search for the answer has left me with IE7 supports transparent pngs. Any idea what Im doing wrong?

How is it hidden?  Are you using a CSS display:none?

Here is the style on my div:

      overflow-x: hidden;
      overflow-y hidden;
      position: absolute;
      visibility: hidden;
      z-index: 1000;

The z-index is being adjusted from negative to positive to bring the element up.

Also, I am using a 3rd party component to generate this menu so my control is slightly limited.

Think you can alter it by having the divs change between display:block (on) and display:none (off) instead of the visibility/z-index trick?

As long as it works, sweet.  I wasn't aware of any transparency issues with PNGs in IE7 (see also http:Q_23447496.html), so this is good to know.
