Your friend must have been using the latest version of M$ IE (5.0)
because version 4 didn't support transparency.  Netscape version 5
also supports transparency, and is available as an alpha-test
version from www.mozilla.org (Milestone 13 is the latest alpha).

But even if version 5 of the popular browsers do support transparent
PNG images, it might not be a wise idea to assume that everyone
viewing your pages is using the latest version.
