It's a PNG in a DIV that absolutely positioned and looks like hell in IE6. :)

IE6? I think I've read about that in books or seen it at the museum or something. ;)

What you are looking for can be found in the awesome world of CSS/CSS2.
Check into z-index and positioning (absolute and relative).

Also, it would help you if you use a developer toolbar.
FF has a good one, but here is one for IE.

Hehehe, IE6. I used a computer today with IE5 still installed on it.

I really couldn't care less what any of my designs look like in IE6, to be honest ... I've stopped catering for it. Those who use it as their main browser should be imprisoned.

:shock: Holy Cow!

To echo raredesign, I suggest you install the developer tools available in any and all browsers you're using. If you're a serious developer.

IE6 doesn't support PNG transparency, so the areas meant to be transparent are light grey.

Pleasure is the wrong word for IE6, also I dont think IE6 supports the Z index of CSS.

Is that the same place and generally at the same time when you lost your laptop?
