Hello Mr postman,
I've never used a .png so I'm not familiar with the hack. Have you tried changing that to a .jpg with a transparent background? I've used them before.
The background is not repeated. I know it doesn't repeat very well but the transitions would be a lot less noticable than the white edges I get on a large monitor. In other words, a browser window bigger than the 1050x900 mainbackground.jpg needs to have the background repeated.
I love that menu "tablist" ! Very cool. The hover effect is a little different from FF to IE but it works in both. I have done similar with "span" but I've never seen "onmouseover="expandcontent" before.
Something else I've never seen is the "first-child" tag you use on your li in the footer.
Validates HTML but CSS validator says there is a missing />
Very impressive for a first page!

Did you upload the pngfix.js file? It's not where the browser would be

Thanks. I think i had my path set incorrectly so it wasn't picking up the .js file. Could someone check it out on PC IE please and let me know if the top image has rounded corners, i.e. transparency is working, or it has sqaure corners i.e. hack not working. Also Is there anyway I can simplify my CSS? I'm still getting my head around this inheritance thing so I think I may have more code than I need?
Yup, rounded corners look good in IE here.

The jpg file format does not support tranparency. Perhaps you were
thinking of gif.
Regardless, I'd love to see one of them.... 8)

Oops, sorry about that Mr postman. Gary is right, I meant .gif.
