I have used png's in place of gif's on my Messianic E-Cards.com website as
I had to manipulate many of the images that came with the greeting card
script that I purchased.
The Gimp could save gif's but on requesting a license from unisys * (The
Gimp doesn't have a 'built in license') there demands were so extreme that
I switched everything to png.

I have just checked on our old computer with IE 4.0 and they all show up
wonderful! Granted they are basic png's with no fancy transparencies but
they work just fine.

Mr. Ridley:

The license fee would be 1% of sales, minimum of $10,000 per year.  Please
provide a fax number to which we can sent the agreement.
