Transparent Background?

Is it already or could it be possible to have a theme where the editing area has a transparent background? I'm a novice with CSS and such, but I've dug through the themes I could find. I see mention of argb for other elements and sometimes see them used in themes, but never for the background element in either the editing or preview windows. My own attempts to change these colors to argb have not worked.

    Thank you for writing in!

    A transparent background would just show you the white of the window, so
    it won't really accomplish anything. The window itself is not transparent.

    I'll add it to the list of things to look into, but because of some of
    the "tricks" I have to do to improve efficiency of some of the features,
    it may not be possible.

    FYI -- version 2.6.9 makes the window transparent, so you can experiment with the editor and preview. I tried it for a bit, and the editor worked ok, but there is some strangeness with the web preview that results in a faint "ghost" image. I probably won't spend the time to track down the cause of this, as it appears to be something in WebKit rather than my app.
