One of the benefits of using CSS Sprites is the fact that they reduce HTTP requests.
aren't you defeating the purpose of using a CSS Sprite in the first place? Loading the transparent gif would result in a HTTP request.
background: url('background.gif') repeat;
Would there be a http request for each repeated image or would there be just one request?
the browser only has to request it the first time. After that it uses the cached copy.
