I am the developer who did the brownish theme.

I saw what you meant, I did not test it in IE6 as most of the people dont use IE6, and IE 8 is also coming soon,

There is a known bug in IE6 that the png files are not displaying correctly. The transparencies are not working at all.

anyway for me I dont really think that it will be useful to check the sites in IE6, but anyway I checked your site with IE 7, Firefox, Opera, and Google Chrome, there it works fine.

I did some little fixes to the theme, and I submitted it the the themes directory.

It will take sometime to get it reviewed, if it is urgent here is a copy of the theme I uploaded to the themes directory.

try with it.

Good if it works well for your purpose.

I suggest you to use transparent GIFs if you really need to implement them

I did not test it in IE6 as most of the people don't use IE6

I think you may be surprised, some recent stats from still have it at 40% of browsers being IE6 and even the W3C schools (which is used by enthusiasts) has it as 20%.

Hopefully it will die a death soon....but for now it seems like it's still too popular to ignore.

Unfortunately I think IE6 will continue to haunt web developers for a while yet. I know of many organisations (councils, colleges, universities etc) that have not moved onto IE 7 or 8 due to legacy reasons.
