    I've used 24bit PNG images on my site — wanted to use the smooth transparency effect it gives. Is this ever a problem? Does any platform/browser not support them? I don't mind if if only effects 1-2% of users.

    IE6 doesn't. Whether or not this matters to you will depend on what your site analytics tell you about browser share.

    You should see what my site looks like in IE6, it looks like someone stuck it in a blender. :D

    haha. I tell all my clients I develop for current and future browsers only. I do not want to use css and javascript hacks to get things to work. I do let the end-user know that they are using an old browser by parsing their user agent and displaying a warning message.

    I use PNG's all the time. I actually never use JPEG any more.
