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,

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