Yes - Converting to RGB and resaving as .gifsolved the problem. Thanks
to all. And yes, too - I understand the effects of the various common
image types. In this case I need to stick with .gif unless the client
says different (and I will offer some explanation). Too bad IE (6) does
not offer better support for transparency with .pngs. The pngfix
workarounds are fatiguing.
happy to go,
