I am trying to use a .png image ( transparent background) as the background of the div.
Problem is that it works in IE8 but not in IE6
div#comment_wrapper {
here is the CSS and please find the attached image
width: 450px;
height: 260px;
margin-top: 150px;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
padding: 0px;
It would be great if some one feed me the fix for it

Kind regards,

Hello, strictly speaking IE6 doesn't support transparency; however, you can use a utility from your CSS to provide this functionality.

Up until IE7, there has been no fully native support for PNG alpha channel transparency in Internet Explorer.

You will find an extended discussion here, along with some workarounds.
