    That's the only relatively good fix I know of. Though it carries some pretty serious downsides. If transparency doesn't add a whole lot, you can just make an equivalent image that is a GIF or an opaque PNG and substitute that in with an IE-specific stylesheet included via conditional includes.

    I've found two problems with my preferred PNG fix (which works on CSS backgrounds, not the often-unsemantic-but-sometimes-semantic <img /> tag):
    1. The color gamut for a PNG always seems to be wrong in IE, no matter what technique is used to render one.
    2. The fixes work only for a single rendered instance of a PNG. If the image repeats in a background, the fix does preserve alpha blending, but it also stops the repeating. That means something like a shadow for a page (something that commonly repeats) won't work.

    In short, avoid PNGs for now until IE6 fades away...probably in a year or more.
