hey everybody:
So I have two (small) problems with my site in IE6.

This is how it should look:

This is what IE6 is doing to it:

This is index page at www.lucidcitypictures.com. I know that with the .png's I need to put the proper code to set transparency in backgrounds. I found this site that shows how to do it:
http://www.twinhelix.com/css/iepngfix/

The problem is that when I put the code in my .css file it turned nearly all of my .pngs invisible. I know I did something wrong. Any ideas? This is what it looked like:
http://www.lucidcitypictures.com/trans.png

Finally, the ColOne content on the page is being pushed down below ColTwo in explorer.

Arg sorry for the newb questions. Don't go too hard on me I'm still learning! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks kindly and Happy Halloween (and Leopard).

The column being pushed down is likely from a float bug which is very typical of IE due to the difference in how they handle floats and margins. Without seeing your code, hard to say precisely what the fix is, but I would guess that you will need an IE-only css file to solve that one, using IE Conditional Comments to select the css for ie-only. (possibly ie6 and lower only)
And Browse back in the Topic list, or use the search feature, to see several recent discussions on png support. Might need to go back a couple of pages, but it has been discussed several times this week in here.

*edit*

Sorry I can't be more help on the IE thing. I can not replicate the problem on my IE6 or IE7.

Nice page, though, hope it gets working for you.
