    semi-Transparent effects

    Greetings, I was wondering if someone can help me figure out what it takes to do something similar to the semi-transparent divs found in the top panel of msn weather site (http://weather.msn.com/) put in a city name or a zip code and it'll add it on top for you. How can I build the css needed to have a semi-transparent div like that with the same hover effect. Thanks.

    Can you post a link to a screen shot? I don't see what you're talking about

    stridox, if you go to this page http://weather.msn.com/ and put in the zip code for your city where it says "Find Weather For:", it will add your city/Temperature inside a box in the top blue section. Thanks.

    you only know something is translucent or semi-transparent when background changes
    background is always blue
    so div's own background is a fixed non-transparent image
