Png-6 – Png transparency support for legacy versions of Internet Explorer

Not satisfied with existing solutions for Png transparency support in Internet Explorer 6 and 5.5, I decided to have a crack at it myself.

Png-6 is a standalone (Java)script that converts inline png-24 images into ‘png-6’ elements. Features include:

  • Full CSS box-model support ( padding, border, width/height and margin )
  • Integration with third-party selector engines and/or standard dom methods for more precise image conversion
  • Requires no placeholder images to work

In case you were wondering the ‘6’ part is a homage to the popular browser. You can download a copy of the script or hot-link it from its google code project page.
