Is there an easy way for the server to show a transparent background in a .png file as transparent and not as a black background like it does with my avatar now?

Funny... When I edited and saved it in CS4 it was a .png with transparent background and when I uploaded it, it was still a .png... ;-)

Does the server software convert .png files to .jpg?
If you would like to try it with my avatart you can download it here.

Yes in fact it does. It does a rescaling for those larger than 100x100 and then generates a new JPEG file.
We think that this way is safer for the older browsers...

sorry,
