Here are two pointers that should get you started with transparent GIFs:

	http://dragon.jpl.nasa.gov/~adam/transparent.html

	http://www.galcit.caltech.edu/~ta/tgif/transgifnotes.html

One of these should point to a couple of sites that have an automatic
on-line gizmo that will convert your GIF to a transparent version... but you 
must put your .GIF in your web directory and be able to supply a URL that 
points to it.  You specify what color background you want, the usual gray, or 
whatever, and then the site returns the URL of the translated GIF.
