Default TD Color Change

This is an HTML / Javascript question...

What I am trying to do is make a very dynamic button set. Ideally I would like to have a partially transparent background image and then control the button color of the button with the bgcolor attribute of the cell. I have tried this with a gif and png image that have transparency, but it seems that when I use it as a background image, it loses the transparency. I am using Javascript to change the TD background color.

Does anyone have any experiences or ideas around this?

Thanks in advance,

<tr><td><input type=button value="blue" name="blue" onclick="changeColor(this.name)">
<input type=button value="darkgray" name="darkgray" onclick="changeColor(this.name)">
<input type=button value="cyan" name="cyan" onclick="changeColor(this.name)">
<input type=button value="red" name="red" onclick="changeColor(this.name)">
<input type=button value="black" name="black" onclick="changeColor(this.name)">

function changeColor(currcolor)

Hope this will help you

Cheers :)
