Does this refers to transparency within an image, or is it transparency of
an object other than an image.

If it refers to images was this implemented?
why does it only relate to png and not gif images?
perhaps someone could expand?

It had been suggested to me that the issue was one for CSS, and I had
thought it was related to the DOM, apologies if this error was confusing.
