Authored by: kirkmc on Jan 31, '06 08:25:34AM

It's "translucent", not "transparent".

Well, technically it could be "semitransparent", not "transparent". ctrl-command-d to the rescue:

translucent = semitransparent

Well, to be really pendantic, it's not translucent, either. In physics, the term translucent refers to a substance that passes light, but diffuses it.
