    I am helping make site with a full page pic as the background. Is there
    a way to use frames in the homepage but have them be transparent so that the BG pic will still show thru and only have the hyperlinks visable. I am using HTML
    Site is www.angelohobbies.com

    thanks
    andy

    You can't do that because it's a totally separate page, but what you can do is get creative with your image, and slice it so that you wind up with 2 BG images. Make the inside one (for your frame) a faded version of the other one, so it appears translucent. Then put it into your frame and set bgproperties to static. That'll do it

    You are allowed to have a transparent IFrame in IE and even perhaps (I have not tested) using the same method on a FrameSet might work.

    Code:
     <IFRAME allowtransparency="true" SRC="http://whatever.com"></IFRAME>
    Make sure the source page has a CSS decleration of "BACKGROUND: TRANSPARENT" in the body.

    Wouldn't work on a frameset, because a frameset isn't an element in a page... it's a different type of page.
