Using transparent as a colour in CSS sculptor

Using transparent as a colour in CSS sculptor

Thanks a lot Neilo,

The issue is more to do with CSS sculptor I think. When I am using the wizard and designing my layout I am inserting a background image which has a gradient. The outer wrapper then sits on top of this. I have a header, content and footer area to a single column page and would like to be able to see through the footer so that it appears to just be the background image showing through and then have my text visible on top.

I am struggling with this part as it seems the CSS Sculptor will let me have any background colour I want except transparent.

I wondered if I could finish up the style sheet with (say) a white background on the footer and then go into the style sheet and manually change the colour but I cant seem to work out what colour to change it to in order to make it see through.

I am going to follow your fireworks instructions now but think that is what I already tried.
