PNG petition for support in MSIE

Microsoft had promised PNG support 4 years ago, and still haven't delivered, even though PNG support would help them comply with W3C standards. PNGs are better than GIFs in a number of ways, most importantly PNG is an open (non-proporietary) graphics standard, file sizes are smaller, it supports more colours and implements transparency properly. It's doubtful Microsoft will listen to this petition asking for support for PNG in MSIE platforms, however, we can but try. It will require a cookie to be stored and has varying levels of privacy for email addresses.
