Previous experience with transparent pngs indicates to me that Netscape
is brain dead when it comes to them.  I spent a ton of time trying to
figure out what was wrong.  I gave up and posted the image as is.  A
friend of mine viewed it with M$ IE and happened to mention to me that
he really liked the transparency.

This appears to be a problem with Netscape on any platform. :(

Y2K...
