Hi.
Anyone who can show me how to create a div with a transparent background, not transparant text, that works well with i.e?
I've tested with the following code. It gives me transparent background and transparent text in Firefox, but nothing in explorer.

Hope you can helpe me.
Best regards
Kristian
