Hi everybody, I have a question.

OK, on my site, I have a layout with stuff in the background that I want people to see. The problem is, I want to use an IFrame for the content. This IFrame goes in front of what I want people to see. How can I get the IFrame to be, "transparent," so people can see whats behind it, but also see the text??? I know it's complicated. Look at what I'm talking about:

Not 100% sure this is going to accomplish what you're after, but you could try this:

<iframe src="whatever.html" allowTransparency="true">
</iframe>

Edit: A quick search on your question turns up a bit more information on the subject. Here's a link to one thread the search turned up that you might find useful: http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=321

Thanks Boxer,

thats part of the answer. Actually I was searching the forums and I found the same question somewhere else, and it told me how to do it. :) :thumbsup:

Ironically, I just edited my post above to include a thread I found by running a quick search on your question. The search feature here is invaluable and is often underused ;).

Cool sk8er9547

I'm glad to inspire. Actually, when the site is done, I'll link to the over 30 full DBZ eps I have. I even have the new fusion saga eps where Goku goes SSJ 3, Majin Buu becomes Super Buu, and Gotenks also goes SSJ 3. So DBZ fans check it out in a few weeks, maybe less. I'll reply to this post when it's done.
