Go to MSDN:
>> HTML, DHTML, & CSS >> Filters & Transitions Reference

The syntax it recommends for IE5.5 is


where n is the percentage of opacity.

There is also a reference in that resource for compatibility with 4.x.

While we're on the subject, does anyone know of an object SPECIFIC to
IE5 that can be used for browser detection?
