How do I make a transparent window in Tkinter?

I think you need version Tkinter 8.4 or higher ...

import Tkinter as tk

root = tk.Tk()
# use transparency level 0.1 to 1.0 (no transparency)
root.attributes("-alpha", 0.3)

Can you only make the root level window transparent? Would it be possible to make a text widget visible, but it's parent window transparent?
