One day I awoke brightly, but to my surprise…

I’ve been so excited to be able to use full alpha transparency PNGs and getting them to play nice in IE6. Today I’ve found another PNG/IE6 issue. It seems that in some cases IE6 doesn’t like to have links in an element that is child of one with a background PNG to which filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader is applied.

The solution (in my case) was very simple: just needed to close the div for the background and add another for the links. Now the links just appear to be contained by the background.

CSS trickery: eat my heart out.
