Hi,

I have a DIV that uses opacity (transbox), inside that DIV is another DIV that includes a slideshow script (showcasebox).
My issue is how do I get the DIV with the slideshow not to display the opacity of the preceeding DIV?
It still has transparency in FF 18.0.2 and Chrome but in IE 8 it looks fine.
I tried using a style in the prceeding DIV like opacity 1.0 etc to show no transparency but that didn't work.
Here is the full page code and a link to a live 'test' page.
