The Age-Old Question of Background Transparency

hello there,

As you can probably tell from the title, I want to make the background of the tables on my forum appear transparent. Thankfully Microsoft finally corrected their foolishness and made IE 7 support PNG transparency. Unfortunately, however, IE 7 is still in beta and not many people have it. Googling found me this website which seems to have a very reasonable and easy answer to this problem.

This method requires you to include a JS file which does the work-around, however since I'm not very experienced with how VBForum works, I'm not sure where one would place the include statement. What I tried was placing the include statement into the headinclude template, and had it refer to the full URL of the JS file, which I placed in a directory on my website, outside the forum folder. I asked a friend who still uses IE 6 and he says that it's NOT working.

Would any of guys know why this isn't working? Am I doing something wrong?

using png. in the design isn't such a good idea... files are huge and slow... use gif instead... their transparency is fully supported and file sizes are set to minimum!

I'm well aware of that, and I've still made the choice to use PNGs because you can do so much more with them than with GIFs. So your post doesn't really help.
