Try this for IE 6 png background issue

.logo {
 background-image:url(Images/logo.png);
 width:165px;
 height:53px;
 cursor:hand;
}
*html .logo {
 background:none;
filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='Images/logo.png',sizingMethod='image');
}

I thought filter would only work on elements that are not repeated or not positioned. I have some elements that do both. I will try this though. WIll that work with html 5 tags?

Or something like this::

<!-- fix issue with PNG images -->
<!--[if lt IE 7.]>
<script src="http://ie7-js.googlecode.com/svn/version/2.1(beta4)/IE7.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<![endif]-->

NB:
The script only fixes images named: *-trans.png
If you want the fix to apply to all PNG images then set a global variable as follows:

var IE7_PNG_SUFFIX = ".png";

You must set this variable before including the IE7.js script. Alternatively, you can set the variable inside the IE7.js script element:

<script src="IE8.js">IE7_PNG_SUFFIX=".png";</script>

Have you looked at the google code link?? It fixes multiple ie6 issues. Any further issues with ie6 should be able to be resolved in CSS

Like :
* html .class {left:10px;}

I think it's more of a html 5/ie 6 issue with pngs.

http://www.joerav.com has been updated with no luck...page freezes in IE. I am using a combination of this fix plus html5shiv, jquery 1.4.2 and jquery tools. WIll the fix only work on images that are in the source code...what about background pngs. Most of my pngs are background images. The version I used before was having issues with pngs as background images on divs.

I normally use the google code and the following png fix together:

And not had any issues, even with background pngs. Let me know if your still having problems

I used the DD_belatedPNG_0.0.8a.js library and that did the trick.
