I wanted 'transparency', but I'd settle for just making the rounded  
corner background the same color as the graphic on which it lays.

One possibility would be to add an additional (optional!) attribute  
wherein you specify the BGcolor for the corner images. This would be  
separate from the BGcolor for the page (and even the HEADER--in case  
it's a different color). I ended up choosing a color from the  

One other possibility, would be to give it a 0.1 transparency, which  
may just be 'close enough' to give the effect we want.

Thank you for this information! I believe it will be helpful!
