    transpart table probs

    ok, i wrote this code

    <b class="tabledesc"><style type="text/css">b.tabledesc{
    width:530;border:1px solid black;backgroundrange;filter:alpha(opacity=30)}
    </style>

    and the problem with it is that it not only makes the table background transparent...it makes everything within the table trasparent too. How do i fix this?

    Because your telling the WHOLE table to use the alpha filter, then it is going to do this not matter what.

    if you only want the background translucent, wouldn't it be easier to use a transparent gif as the background?

    Yup. You can choose your own transparency level in any graphics program, again called the 'Alpha'.

    The other adavntage of this route is that 'filter' is an Internet Explorer invention, so the semi-transparent gif will work across most browsers too.

    Sorry My big weakness is graphics.

    You could try in the 'Graphics' forum, or failing that press F1 in PhotoShop and search the help.

    Hmm. The only css effects available for translucency are the filter: Alpha(Opacity=40) and similar effect in Internet Explorer 6+. this means, in a nutshell, that there is no Cross-browser and/or standards-compliant way of doing this
