hi erik,

as probably several other people are writing at the moment: you can't use
partially transparent layers.

the only method to achieve this is to do a tile with alternate pixels
white/transparent. i have found that you'll need to have a tile with
minimum size 8x8px - otherwise some browsers do funny things...
