Unfortunately there's no actual way of doing this directly in HTML.

I guess you'll have to modify the image before displaying it.

The only possible 'run-time' method I can think of is have some sort of code running to 'filter' the image that is returned.

This appears to do something like what you want:

But it's going to add quite a bit of processing time to the page load.

No way with JavaScript - no way on the web that I can think of, so it's going to have to be a transparency job.

The closest simulation I can think of would be to use a design program cut the diamond shape into lots of little rows, so I can't see that working very well.

If you let us know why you wanted to do it like this then we might be able to offer some suggestions as to how to replicate the effect...?
