Hi,

1st question here and new to CSS so please be patient.

I was wondering whether it was possible to somehow set IE6 to just not display a png if it contains alpha transparency? I don't want to use any PNG fixes I would just like to know if its possible to simply ignore it.

The best example I could find is this company's site here... http://www.redcrownstudio.com/ . There is a drop shadow/glow around the main wrap that shows in all well-behaved browsers but is simply ignored when I open the page in IE6.

Is this something set up on purpose or is a just another IE6 quirk (I notice I get an strange error message in  IE6). If it is I have been unable to reproduce it - I always see the PNG displayed...

Thanks for any help you can give.

These are both great - thanks

@ hielo - I was aware I could do this with a conditional statement but thanks for the clarification. I'm still alittle confused as I can't see how  it was done on the site i linked to originally - seems to be no conditional statements or use of abels technique. How have they achieved it?

@ abel - again, thanks. I need the css to validate so I don't think I can use this method. Thanks for alll the additional tips and explanations.
