    Why the transparent gradient shadows do not show up in IE6?



      I'm making the instruction manual for a program and want to use images of pushpins with gradient shadow effects to spruce things up.. The thing is that I just cannot make my png 8 -alpha transparency images - which look exactly as they should in Firefox - to have ANY shadow! Of course, I have been using the right filter, but only the bare png images appear without any shadow, whatever I do. Can you tell what I do wrong?


      In my css I address the size, the positioning and the appearance of each "pin" separately like:


          height: 100px;
          position: absolute;
          filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='./images/pushpins/red_down .png', sizingMethod='scale');

      /* For the size*/


      *.screenshot *.top_left{

      /* To determine a certain position*/



      And the double declaration to handle IE6 apart from the normal world..*/



          background:transparent url("../images/pushpins/red_down.png") no-repeat scroll !important;
          filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src="./images/pushpins/red_down .png");


      Please, find included one of these "pins".

      I have been using Fireworks MX, because I bought it in a bundle with Dreamweaver.


      Could you tell if this is a css or an image exporting issue?
