I had a play with using binary transparency and dithering, but it looked
awful. It's not like IE can't do alpha, I use it for foreground images all
the time, it's just so damn inflexible that I can't use it for background
images with repeats or positioning. I'm adding an inconspicuous footer to
all of my pages now that tells IE users that they should get a real browser.
