This was very strange: I tested it again (and did a "refresh"),
and still got the clear pixel. Then I disabled Java, JavaScript,
and templates, and did another refresh, and suddenly the
GIF appeared as it should.

However, the JavaScript setting does not appear to have the
same effect now. I suspect the problem was some sort of blockage
related to the local cache memory, possibly related to WebWasher.

In fact, since I wasn't sure how soon the problem would be solved, I
took the PNG and converted it to a GIF for use on our site.

Thanks again for your help!
