Is it possible to add a drop-shadow to a png in such a way that certain browsers such as IE won't wreck the picture?
a) Just give it a solid background.
b) Make it solid immediately around the drop shadow, and cut off to transparent for the rest. (Save as indexed color.) Might look okay for a consistent, slightly varying background.
c) Use scary HTML/CSS hacks to show alpha-transparent PNGs in IE. Doesn't work on some versions, may crash, and may cause ActiveX security warnings. (Google up 'AlphaImageLoader')
