I seem to be having a problem with CSS filters. What I want to do is to have a line of text with a CSS filter (glow for example), this text is in a table that has a background color. The table itself would have another filter on it (alpha for example). The result should be glowing text on a semitransparent background. The problem I am having is that the background for the text area becomes completely transparent whenever a filter is applied to the table. Here is some code to show my problem:
If anyone could tell me what I'm doing wrong or if there is a workaround i would be thankful.
<table width=200 height=200 style="filter: alpha(opacity=60);">
<center><span style="height: 1; filter: glow(color=red, strength=3);">HELLO!</span></center>
