Forehead dents in the wall are doing me no good at all!
I'm creating a horizontal navbar with buttons that are completely transparent, but have highlights and shading that are reversed onhover/onclick. All works fine in all the good browsers.
So, after successfully implemented the PngFix.js so that transparent PNGs appear transparent in IE6, I' now left with the problem that those buttons are fully transparent in IE6 and show no highlights/shading at all - they are no longer visible as buttons.
I've tried various other fixes (IE7.js, DD_belatedPNG), but no improvement.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how I can get the highlights/shading to appear in IE6?
Do what most of do: curse, rant, drink and then use jpgs or solid color blocks for IE.
It may not give you the transparent look you crave but at least the buttons will be visble.

It's going to hack me off even more if I just have to roll over, give in to MS and accept nothing can be done.
I'm encouraged by the fact that a number of people have found solutions to displaying transparent PNGs in IE6. If that can be done, I'm wondering whether there is a a further small tweak that can get IE6 to display the bevelling and embossing created in Photoshop. Ideally, knowing why it doesn't display it or even why it can't possibly display it would be helpful.
