Great article Drew – I love any way to speed up pages without harming the aesthetics, and I’m sure IE will catch up in their next version – they’re not so bad at that these days.

There’s one thing I think is missing from this technology. In your ‘HEADER 1’ example, you’ve shown the BODY with a patterned background, the DIV with a solid white and then some RGBA transparency on the H1 so it partially shows through to the DIV. What if you wanted the type to show through all the way to the BODY background but still keep the rest of the DIV solid white?

I suppose there would have to be another property where you specify through how many elements you want to ‘burrow’ the transparency. Unless I am being dumb and there is a way?
