greetings all,

i'm having some trouble viewing  png transparency in IE 6.

it seems that there are several ways to make IE6 behave properly, with the 
alpha filters etc - but on all the sites i visit, none of them work in MY 

for instance, quirksmode.org/css/opacity.html

when i look at the page, under the word Example - all 3 purple boxes are 
identical, where they are supposed to have various opacity in anything 

also, when i search in google for anything about png transparency not 
working in ie6, all i get is hundreds of pages about the solution and the 
fun everyone is having using this - but not a lot of luck finding out why 
MINE doesn't work!

i have xp with sp2,  and i  keep ie6 as a test browser for myself, so 
changing to ie7 is not the angle i'm looking for here.   i looked at my dll 
files for dxmsft.dll, and dxtrans.dll and they are up-to-date.

any advice?  thanks in advance
