After a few hours of trying the many fixes to the png black border problem I am turning to the experts.
The link will take you to a simple animated banner http://www.soundsairpark.com/test.php

My pngs fade in fine on all brewers except IE8. I have literally tried everything to stop the black border appearing around the png while it fades in.
Can anyone help?

PS: I have applied this class to my images but still no luck:
.png-fix {
    background: transparent;
    -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#00FFFFFF,endColorstr=#00FFFFFF)"; /* IE8 */    
    filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#00FFFFFF,endColorstr=#00FFFFFF);   /* IE6 & 7 */      
    zoom: 1;
}

That's the problem with IE8 and alpha channels in PNGs. Whenever you change the fade:ing it still ends up creating ugly-looking black borders. AFAIK there's no way to solve this except for adapting your image so there's no semi-transparent pixels.
