This other problem is along the lines of the transparency issue. In order for my alpha filter to work there needs to be a width and/or height value in my code. I only want the length of the text to be in the transparency and not the entire width of the screen. Is there a way to find out how wide my section of text is? (Any form of the accepted measurements is fine with me.)
Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered.
I'll include my stylesheets and pages that I'd like to implement these functions on.
