I've used this before: http://www.twinhelix.com/css/iepngfix/ but beware 
of IE limitations: with an alpha filter on a background png you can't 
control background-position or background-repeat.  It will always be 
"top left" and "repeat"  You might also check out IE7.js by Dean 
Edwards: http://dean.edwards.name/IE7/overview/

BTW, I think you may have to do "background-image" with a lowercase "b".
