Faded Background on Full Page Area

Can anyone recommend a cross browser solution to cover full web page
(100% in height and width) with faded background (apparently DIV
element)?

Please elaborate. For example, what do you consider a "faded background"
(I found four translations for "faded" in my dictionary, and only two coming
remotely close to making any sense)?

Reads more like a CSS problem (on-topic in
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets). Why do you think this
could/should be resolved with client-side scripting?

Faded background in my understanding would be something very close to
http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox/ where transparent
black layer covers screen area. I used pageYOffset for FF and
scrollTop for IE to calculate top position of my 100% wide and tall
div. I do not enjoy this idea and I thought there might be better
solutions which I haven't heard of.
