No. But why do you require that format? Is there something wrong with
background: transparent (the initial value), which will make an
element's background transaprent?

(Note of course that backgrounds won't work on images (unless of course
the images are themselves transparent, in which case it should) so if
you are trying to make an image transparent, that won't work).
