I never suggest using PNG images since they are bigger in size and not compatible with many browsers. Although you can fix their appearance so their transparency can persist. But sometimes they are needful for web designers. So here I am mentioning some PNG fixes as per my experience.

These fixes may fix transparency of a PNG image. But you would have to test it with various version of internet browsers like IE 5,6,7 etc, various internet browsers like chrome, Firefox, epic, IE etc. And on various platform like Mac , Windows, Linux, Mobile OS.

Testing a page against so many browsers is really a tough job. Specially when you asked to test it on various platforms. You can use one click solution for this. It’ll not only save your time but money as well.

If you are wrodpress blogger then HITS- IE6 PNGFix might help you to fix PNG transparency in IE6. You may try it to other browsers as well. But author claims to fix in IE6 only.

Moreover, CSS compatibility charts can help you giving an idea about what part or browser you are missing from testing your webpage.
