I can confirm that. Many enterprise are forced to continue with an IE6 legacy.

I've just built a site with alpha-transparent png's used as background images. There is indeed a way to let ie6 render those images by using a ms-specific instruction in your css-file.

something like that:

/* Adding alpha-transparency functionality to IE5.5+ */
* html div.contentheader {
filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='/themes/mytheme/images/background.png', sizingMethod='scale');

The sleazy thing about this solution ist that "filter" is not css-conform and any "normal" browser will give an error by reading the css-file. You also can't to input the path of your file relatively, you have to input it absolutely based on your htdocs-directory.
