I have a solid blue background color on a web page. Then I have a 800px solid white centered container that is going to hold all my content.
What I want to do is have transparent blue div that while over the white, will be as close to the solid blue page background as I can get it.
Right now I am just eyeballing it. And I would like to know if there is an actual method to figuring this out. I have searched everywhere with no answers.
This is as close as I can get it.
solid blue background = #99ccff
transparent blue over solid white = Opacity 37%, #0099FF
There is no CSS alpha/trans applied. The trans blue is a transparent png image created in illustrator set to 72ppi in RGB color mode (as basic as it gets).
If anyone has a method other than just "eying it", please let me know
You know what is stupid I did that for a site I did a while back. I guess I was just so dead set and concentrating so much on matching the solid (websafe) color, that I forgot it was much easier to do the reverse.
