I have played with opacity filters only just a little and found them to be a little bit problematic. For example I experienced that the opacity filter did not simply effect the background color but everything in the division. Consequently I did not like the opacity lowering of my font.
I wanted to use it on ,<a href="http://ifunky2.blogspot.com> my blog </a> . please go check it out. it is about my daily dealings/ thoughts on css. I just started it but I have allready put up a short tutorial/ comment example page about how to avoid the ugly extra padding that IE sometimes and seemingly randomly will put into a verticle link menu useing an un ordered list as markup structure.
So please any and all I would love to see comments on "opacity filters" and heck while your commenting let me know what you think of my styling job on the douglas bowman blogspot template>>> Aloha from

Yes opacity does effect text if its within same div you need to use it on an image in its own div then layer over it using z-index, but I haven't used it much myself, too propriatory ! although you can use -moz-opacity: 1.0; to acheive the same IE effect.

opacity filters

Opacity is now a css3 recommendation and has been adopted by Mozilla and Firefox latest versions.

opacity:0.5; /* values from 0 to 1 */

It's not what you do it's the way that you do it.
So do it with STYLE
