I am sorry for the confusion, I will attempt to explain the problem more clearly. In order to get the text to show up clearly against the image in the background I have to add color to text box, and make it 50% transparent so you can still see the image but also read the text. The problem I am having is in the powerpoint I have the color set as white with 50% transparency. When I export as html the color is showing up as gray with 0% transparency. But I know it will handle the color because the title text box is formatted the same way and it shows up as white 50% transparency.
It just didn't make sense to me because I have formatted them the same way before with no trouble. The only thing that I know to do is to start from scratch and I don't want to do that because I have the narration and timing set up the way I need it.
