    CSS Alpha / Opacity on background AND text


    Hey all.

    I've been trying for a couple of days (!!!) now to solve this problem, but I finally give up

    anyways..

    I've got a single-celled table with an image as a background and inside the table there's text.

    The background of this table I have opaqued so it's translucent to the background of the actual page itself using CSS' Alpha filter.

    But my problem now is the text within the table itself is opaqued now as well, which makes it rather hard to read.

    Is there a way for me to apply the alpha filter ONLY on the background of the table, but not on the text itself?

    Use a semitransparant PNG as background image for the table.
