With a transparent background.

P: n/a
Hi all,

I would like to make a table or a div with a transparent background. The
solution found does work only with FireFox using a png image. The second
one works with IE and FireFox but make the text inside the div be
transparent.
Example:
http://boxfly.free.fr/test/example.html

Is anyone know how to manage to make a table with a transparent
background without making the text inside the table being transparent ?

Thanks,
Vincent.

I've found a solution:

which works with IE 6.0 and FF but not tested with IE 5.x, could anyone
having this browser tell me if the transparence works with it ?

Thanks,
Vincent.

IE 5.1.7 on MacOs 9.2.2 => ok
Mozilla 1.3.1 on MacOs 9.2.2 => ok
Icab 3.0.2 on MacOs 9.2.2 => ok
netscape 4.7.7 on MacOs 9.2.2 => not ok :-)

Netscape 4.x does support partial transparency neither for colors nor
for images. If (for sport ?) one decides to emulate it for Netscape 4.x
- she can use the "blury mesh" trick:
a GIF images containing a mesh of transparent and say gray pixels. The
effect is similar to Windows' desktop view when calling Start > Shut
Down. This is the closest opacity emulation you can get for Netscape 4.x

Alpha API:
http://chrisken.utacm.org/code/alphaapi.phtml
(MSIE/Moz)

Poor man's transluscency through dithered GIF background:
..something {
background:transparent;
background-image:url(data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAgACAPABAAAAAP%2F%2F%2FyH5BAEKA AEALAAAAAACAAIAAAIDRAIFADs%3D);
}
(all that support GIF transparency).
Not all browsers support the data: URL in which case just decode it in
one that supports and save as a plain gif file.
