Trouble with transparency option with logo I've developed for website

I've developed a simple page header logo in Illustrator 11.0.0.  When I "Save For Web" it defaults to PNG-24.  I check the transparency option which then shows a checkered background behind the logo.  When I save the image and post it on my website I get a grey background instead of transarent.  What am I doing wrong?
Minimum experience with Illustrator.
See sample at www.primerb.com/example.aspx

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Which version of Internet explorer are you using? If IE6 then that is normal as it cannot handle the png transparency properly but you can find a hack on the web.
On IE 7 or 8 it looks fine

Did you test this in a browser or from your html editor?
Some editors use a 'gray' to indicate transparency...

That's it.  I should have known better to try it in another browser.  Should I stick with PNG with the hack or is it better to use a different format.

png is a good format used with the hack and GIF offer lesser quality
Maybe you should upgrade your browser also and use IE7 but keep in mind that you still have about 20% of IE6 users visiting your websites !
