Hi, Aardvark!

Have any idea which specific browsers now support PNG's (either w/alpha trans or without)?

I haven't created them in PhotoShop yet (altho I'd love to), having heard a long time ago that browers by and large were not yet ready to support them. So, now, do you have any idea which ones do?

I still don't think I'd chance it because of backward compatibility issues (except maybe on an intranet).
