Phillip,

I think you misunderstood a bit. I use this method once in a while as 
well. I'm not substituting the transparency for a grey background, I just 
make the transparent colour grey, so that it will bw true transparent in 
clients which support this and light grey in those which don't.

Best,

Jon
