I’m a bit late to this christmas party, but hey…

Having recently battled with png transparencies and positioned elements containing links in IE6, I found that by actually cutting a hole in the png where you wanted focus (eg. where the input field will appear on the rendered page) let the cursor through the “AlphaImage Barrier”.

Obviously this is only going to be good for fairly static layouts, where the element that you want to interact with is of a fixed width, height and position relative to the containing element and would be a pain if it was required for more than a few images – but it worked for me!
