I found an article online that keeps up with .png support of browsers which said:

"MSIE for Windows, were locked in the dark ages of GIF-style binary transparency until the release of MSIE 7.0 in October 2006. "

This means IE 6 still doesn't support png. Correct?

True that is lorel.

IE6 does not support the alpha transparency option, without the IE PNG filter hack (search that for more info)

I personally have started using .png in my pages anyway. The way I see it, if you're still using IE6, you're probably neither a regular web user or online shopper and so you probably won't be much loss to my site/business anyhow :D

Just a quick side note about most of the alpha transparency .png hacks for IE6:
Most of them affect the positioning and repeat value of the .png image if used as a background in your css. No matter what positioning or repeat value you give it, it "may" default to top left repeat. In order to fix this you need to apply a value of zoom: 1; . Hope that helps as well. Now if we can only get people to stop using IE6!
