Re: [css3-background] possibly too late for last call, but: background-opacity?

I would like to second Patrick's recommendation for "background- 
opacity".

I have been using transparent png's also but I would like to animate  
this opacity over time using css transitions or jquery. The effect  
would be great with multiple backgrounds using animated opacity  
depending on user interaction.

Please consider this.


regards,

Lee
