Semi-transparent menu backgrounds

Hi all

I'm sure this is possible, and probably straight forward, but just need it confirmed before I commit to someone!

Can I create a menu with, for instance, a 50% white background so the page beneath shows through?

Many thanks in anticipation

It can be done with semi-transparent .png files in the background. The next version of css menus will actually include some examples of this.

In the current version you would have to add a .htc file so that .png files would work in IE6, but it is still possible with a few minor edits.
