Do you want to see what's behind the text on a form, or do you want the text
to appear on the screen without a form behind it?

There are numerous ways of doing it, but (as is the case with most things)
telling us *why* you want to do it is often loads better than simply telling
us what you want to do. It will enable people to select the most appropriate
method. Post again with some more details.
