dunno... anyone?  or was that supposed to be rhetorical?

either way, i'm sure we can figure out the best way to do it...

probably... aliased edges would be necessary otherwise, and 
probably sticking with straight black or white text if there's no 
image bg... or make the image a giant block, so it can sit on 
anything, even if it does clash...

of course, liquidity gets wonky... unless we use CSS to override 
user prefs in certain spots (which is eminently do-able)...
