Transparency - Main Menu

Is it possible to have the background of my main menu completly transparent but my menu text visable.

As it is now:
I have my menu within a table with a background image.
overfilter="Shadow(color='#EFEDDE', Direction=135, Strength=5);Alpha(opacity=0)";

I want to be able to see all of the table backgroung image and just the menu text.

I can't find any stlye classes for Alpha on your faq etc....

Hope this makes some sence

Not sure if this will work, but try a menu background image that's transparent and remove the Alpha filter.

Another suggestion...

Remove Alpha() from your overfilter, as John suggested, and in your menu style, set offbgcolor="transparent";

One problem you'll likely encounter by making the menu background transparent (by whatever means) is that the drop shadow will now apply to the text in each menu item (in ie5.5+). And that'll look just plain weird! So, you'll probably want to remove Shadow() from the overfilter as well.

Hope that helps,
