Can we make the text have a transparent background ?
Dan Craciun

Of course. If you follow that tutorial you'll see that was the default.
They had to add a span to achieve the semitransparent box look.

Just don't use the span.

You said "Just don't use the span.", but the tutorial uses span.

Please provide sample code for the transparent look.

Instead of
<h2><span>A Movie in the Park:<br />Kung Fu Panda</span></h2>
<h2>A Movie in the Park:<br />Kung Fu Panda</h2>

That will put the text on top of the picture, with no semitransparent box.

Would user's different desktop/browser settings mess up our positioning of picture on the page?

It works in all browsers. You would need to check on phones/tablets, but it should work there also.
