    Re: Transparent over bg??

    I don't think you want the background to be transparent. If you do that, the background of your comment boxes will be your image, which will make them hard to read. How about something like white? For example:

    Code:
    <textarea style="background-color: white; color: black;">
    some text here . . .
    </textarea>
    The above code sets the background color to white and the text color to black.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Transparent over bg??

    I think technically the term is translucent - i.e. semi-transparent.
    The easiest way to do this is use one of the generators and see what code it puts in to change the opacity.
    It normally puts 3 or 4 values in to cover a multitude of browsers.

    or you can use this,
    but like the other person said,
    it can make your text hard to read,
    but thats why you change the color of the text
    to something that stands out on the whole page.
    or just let people suffer. haha.

    .notes {make background of tables transparent}
    Table Td { background-color:transparent; }

    .notes{bottom links background transparent}
    tr {background-color:transparent}

    both of these must go inside style tags
