Hay philleep,

Now if you what semi-transparency in IE theN use the code below, but be warned ;) even though it works it will not validate through W3C CSS Validator.
So you use opacity in FireFox and Opera and Netscape, use filter in IE.
Just put it in a separate css file.
Try it out...
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. .ClassName {
  2. filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(opacity=0.75);
  3. }
You must copy filter exact because it is case sensitive. The gap between the 'g' and 'e' is not Intentional it should be one word if you will. This code gives you 75% opacity but of cause you can change it to what suits you.
