I have to live with a javascript gizmo on my pages. I've edited it's background color to better suit my html / css, but I'd really like to make the background transparent. I'm revising my html to use far fewer images, and more css, so I have to update the pages anyway. I've tried a number of ideas to replace the javascript color code which just turned the blackground black, also tried replacing the javascript code with "transparent", and the whole widget disappeared. The code for it looks like this:

<!-- There are two instances of the background color, 0x3d5549, that I'd like to present at perhaps 20% opacity. -->

<!--ASW--><!--version 1.0-->
<!--There are two instances of 0x3d5549 which are the portions of the image I want to go semi transparent-->

If you have any pointers or suggestions, I'd be much obliged. I know almost nothing about JavaScript, though I do have the Free JavaScript Editor.

Peace,

Dave

your best bet is to use F12 on the page after it's rendered, follow the DOM Tree, and find the class or id name of the object you want to affect, then attach your own CSS to make the changes you want. It looks like the params that are passed are expected params by the widget, and adding new params won't make a bit of difference - or may just break the widget.

It may not be possible, unless you can make the background disappear entirely, and make your own background to fit in the div.
