I've stopped using transparent pngs as I've not been able to make them truly transparent without an IE6 work around stylesheet.

How are you doing it?

I meant that OS X has a similar UI philosophy with regard to transparency and clickability.

wait are you talking about a button using a transparent png for background? you could try styling the anchor tag with a height and width and position:relative http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=530067

Really, way too much trouble.

no, it's just a normal image in HTML, surrounded by an anchor tag. thanks for the good idea though!
