okay - scratch my last message.  it doesn't look like i have pngfix 
working.  see: www.dottedi.biz/tests/test.html

I have pngfix.js set up as an include file using defer.  On my laptop, 
the three images display as transparent in firefox, but with white 
backgrounds in IE, including the ones that gotten out of MS office 
clipart.  On this pc I am using IE 6.

So - can someone tell me if I have set up pngfix correctly, if you have 
IE 6 are you seeing the same thing?  I'm trying to isolate whether it is 
a problem with GIMP or other?  I am feeling either very young or very 
old just now.

That was the link where I got the solution.
