I have a webpage where the body background is an image repeated. I'd like to create a DIV box where the background color (of the box) is slightly transparent, showing the image underneath. I've seen something like this on my friend's myspace page. I've attached an example of what I am trying to do. Does anyone know how to do that in HTML?

Thanks!

Dear Proxtu,

I actually have written an article on this subject that should help you out: Transparent Backgrounds with CSS.
