Just as long as you don't need transparacy - because msie doesn't render it properly.

1-bit transparency, such as found in GIF, is supported by IE. It is the 8-bit "alpha-channel" transparency that IE doesn't directly support without the use of a filter.

if you need 8bit alfa transparency in png to work with ie - try using 1bit transparency and dithering.

A PNG has the same level of quality in less space than most GIFs.

PNG can support more detail than GIF, with things like 64 bit RGBA color spaces (48 bit RGB) and so forth.
