This works only for solid color backgrounds. If a special color name
'clear' were defined such that it erased the element's background, then
you could spec

  BODY { background: url(dark.gif) }
  P {    color: yellow }
  .hi {  color: clear; background: url(light.gif) }
  this week in <SPAN CLASS=hi> w I r E d </SPAN>

and have w I r E d in a box filled with light.gif and have dark.gif
showing through the letters.
