How do I make frames Translucent

I have a sliced jpeg that I want to use for the back ground of my site, I have a navigation and a content frame on my site as well, I want to make it so that the frames, "navigation and content" are translucent.  The background. Is this possible? what is the code to do so? and which language is it? Thanks in advance.

I would suggest that you don't use JPG for your images. JPG files don't support transparency. Use GIF or PNG (Macromedia Fireworks). Ensure you use Alpha Transparency to create your image, then the non-specified regions of your image will be transparent.

I don't *think* that you CAN have frames as translucent.
Unless you use something like Flash, or Dreamweaver  --  AFAIK!

Good luck with it though -- and I would like to know if this is possible :-)

you cant use frames that way...
Frames are completly different html pages that are made to look like a single page.

therefor you cant have a background that goes across two or more frames and hope to have them line up...

I would suggest other approches such as layers, with javascript,

OR simply use includes files for the menu.

If you have a background image on the page that the frame will appear on, you could edit that background a bit, and add a white layer on top of it, e.g. with an opacity of say 50%, then apply that new background to the frames background, which will give a translucent effect!  ":0)
