Adjusting the div#wrapper to adjust body transparency (need text to show up 100%)

Hello Juggledad and others,

I have been searching for awhile but I did not locate the answer to what I am trying to do.

First off, I am applying a bit of CSS to the div#wrapper so that the body can be made into an adjustable fade. The problem is that I haven't located the appropriate CSS that will make the TEXT elements 100% visible.

Here is the code that I inserted into the 'CSS Inserts' box.

div#wrapper {
       filter: alpha(opacity=50);
On a side note, IE8 i still showing the menu as 100% visible but in Firefox the menu is correct (other than the text issue).

So, is there a way to make the text show up at 100% ?

Thank you very much.

remember CSS is CASCADING - what you apply to an element cascades to ALL it's children unless you have other CSS to reverse it.

In the case of opacity things can be funny and when you apply it to the wrapper I think it will apply to the whole page so be aware,. It may be easier to create an opaque background image
