    Transparent PNG behind transparent DIVs

    Hi! In need of some CSS expertise... I have a background image and opaque divs. I am trying to have '#bgGen' show as a background image but in front of '.mybg.jpg'. So, in my html I have the following:
    HTML Code:
    <div id="bgGen">
    My CSS is the following:
    /* Background image */
    body { background-image:url('mybg.jpg');
    background-attachment: fixed;
    /* Middle layer for background-- not working */
    #bgGen {
    	background-image: url('mymiddlebg.png');
    	background-position: center center;
    	background-repeat: repeat-y;
    /* Front Divs with content and opaque background*/
    .mycontentdiv {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 transparent !important;
    Hope I explained this correctly... The only way I'm seeing my png is to set the position: absolute but it breaks everything else on the pages.

    Any clues?

    Have you got a live version of the website? because I can't quite work out what your going for.

    Heres a good example of transparency/opacity.

    No I don't. But I've attached an image that shows the layers I'm trying to achieve. Screen shot.jpgThe light middle bg layer is what's I'm trying to figure out. Thanks!

    I GOT IT WORKING!! I had no idea you could have multiple background images. So I changed my css to the following:

    body { background-image:url('front_layer_background_image.png'),url('back_layer_background_image.jpg');
    background-position:center, center;
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-repeat: repeat-y,repeat-x;
    Not sure if I wrote this 100% correct but it looks good in all browsers so far.
    My 'front_layer_background_image.png' is a transparency so I can see the 'back_layer_background_image.jpg' behind it!
