Thanks, Sam

png fix seems to be the culprit

I must not have it set up in the right place in the header, or I have 
done something else wrong.  It is working perfectly for IE with 
background images defined in CSS, but causing the hang in images such as 
buttons on a page.

Can I get a pointer to version/implementation that y'all know works for 
sure.   Where should it be in the page header?
