    Opaque Tables

    Im new to HTML, so I will probably need this explained in simple terms. I want to thank everyone in advance for any help they give me.

    Im setting up a MySpace page, I have a background image that I want to show.
    How do I keep the text and pictures in the tables at 100%, but make the table background opaque at about 40 or so? I cant use transparent, I need some color in the tables in order to read it.

    Make a semi-transparent PNG image and set it as the table background. Note that Internet Explorer 6 doesn't know what semi-transparency is so it'll show up as opaque in that browser. I already have a 1×1 image at 60% transparency (or was it 60% opacity?) on my Photobucket if you want to try messing with that: http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...es/60trans.png.
    For every complex problem, there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.
