$im = imagecreate(500, 400);

$bgc = imagecolorallocate($im, 0, 0, 0);   
$tc = imagecolorallocate($im, 255, 255, 255);   

imagettftext($im, 20, 10, 100, 200, $tc, "/arial.ttf",$text);
imagecolortransparent($im, $bgc);

Your code looks ok. I ran it (substituting text string) then if I used

<img src='test.png'>

in an html file, I get a transparent background.

Also, if I took out the filename from imagepng() and used (saving your script as testpng.php )

<img src='testpng.php'>

it worked ok.
