width:1024px;
text-align:left;
margin-left:auto;

<script type="text/JavaScript" src="includes/jquery.js"></script>

		$('#pagewidth').fadeTo("fast", 0.4);

You can't fade just the background of a div tag. Fading will affect the entire element, and all child elements.
To achieve the effect you want, you'll need to place a div inside of pagewidth which is a sibling of the div with the test "test" and then fade that.
