The supersleight script worked like a charm. Before I’ve had to bow down and suck it up when it came to IE6 and alpha transparency however now it’s apparent that within the right CSS this can be used quite effectively. The only real change I needed to make was an addition to the conditional comment. Since you can’t apply a positioning attribute of ‘repeat’, I created two different background PNG gradients. One for one pixel width repeats used in all browsers but IE6 and the other, a full width gradient to be used with supersleight. The only thing I see is during the “onload” event, the gradient flickers due to the script routine. However it only has a duration of a few milliseconds and its better than the dreary solid PNG. Thanks a ton Drew, you’re a life saver!
