Hi Richard,

I can't quite follow the logic of using a transparent background, if it
truly is a background then the need for transparency wouldn't be necessary.
If some complex layered affect is going to be achieved then that is probably
more of an issue than the transparency.

My feeling is that avoiding  transparency is preferable, although if the
user is using a custom style sheet it will likely disable whatever
background you were using anyway.
