Yes, as an element of an HTML document. Some versions of IE4 cannot display
a PNG image by itself. It calls whatever helper app is configuerd to handle
PNG on that machine. But as an element of an HTML page, it works fine. Some
of the finer features like transparency make not have full support though.

I really don't think it will be a problem for Linux/UNIX users with
Netscape 4.6+ or any of the more recent developmental browsers. Windows and
Mac users who are reading LDP documents will probably be using a recent
enough browser that PNG will be supported. There may be audiences that are
using a browser that doesn't support PNG, but I can't think of any offhand.
