(Taking Taco's suggestion, and mentioning this here rather than trying to
converse on the Wiki's talk pages.)
Patrick, Mojca, Taco, and other Wiki-people:
The rendered text on the Wiki has suddenly become ugly -- letters are
thinner (too thin!), and the edges of the text are a bit ragged.
My guess is that this is a result of the interaction between anti-aliasing
and setting the transparency to true -- everything that was anti-aliased to
gray is now also set transparent, and thus becomes white when displayed.
I don't know if this is browser-dependent or not, but it's repeatable in
both Opera and Firefox, on my (Windows) computer.
Given this problem, I would recommend reverting to the non-transparent version.
