Mouseover opacity in IE

Would anyone be kind enough to check this page in IE and offer an explanation why the onmouseover, onmouseout opacity function is not working on the pics. It works in Safari and Firefox on both Mac and PC. Thanks.

I found out how to apply the effect using CSS here:

and on this page the effect works in IE.

I managed to solve the problem by removing the 3 lines of code in the index.html file that link to the ie6.css file. Not sure why this would be and whether it will have other repercussions later?

Would still be interested to know if someone more knowledgeable could tell me which line of code in the ie6.css file caused the problem?

Are any of the images you are trying to manipulate PNG, by any chance?
You may be running into a clash with a PNG-fix library somewhere.
Otherwise, changing the opacity of an image should work, as long as
you use both the normal opacity: and IE-only filter alpha wangdoodle
thing in concert, and make sure to only serve the relevant part of
they style effect to the browser that needs it. One day, when pigs fly
I suppose, IE will support and follow the standards, like a good
citizen. Or it won’t be installed any more. One of those would be nice.

Walter,
I have not used any PNGs, the images are all JPGs. I have also used the normal opacity and IE specific filter alpha bit.

I found a site that mentions that ‘IE requires an element to be positioned in order for filter/opacity to work’, so I don’t know if something in the ie6.css file was working against this? Here is a link to the site if anyone’s interested:
