Latexwiki uses transparent png's, and has this problem. I fixed it using another option with some CSS magic.

However, I was reluctant to do it. IE users should not be under any delusions that their browser is not broken. M$ plays these kinds of tricks because it makes everyone else's software look broken, and encourages people to use all-M$ software.

not the same, but ok --betabug, Wed, 21 Feb 2007 09:27:37 +0000 reply

The look in IE is not the same as in correctly working browsers, but I believe it's good enough. I vote for not doing any CSS hacks on this one by closing the issue :-)

The issue has been fixed in IE7 anyway.

BTW, strictly speaking IE6 wasn't broken, the PNG specification was.
