I've done tons of searching, but it's hard to sift through all the "i don't know how to make a transparent background" posts.

Anyway, I don't believe this is possible, especially not with straight CSS, but the effect I'm trying to achieve is explained in the title... a box which expands height-wise to accommodate content, background starts as a solid color and in the last (any number here) pixels displays a semi-transparent PNG. I've done a bit of fiddling, but don't have anything significant to show, code-wise, this is more of an abstract idea. It will (hopefully) be implemented on this site, but as you can see, I've done no work to attempt fluid columns, they're static.

Anybody ever achieved this effect? I'm not particularly against Javascript, but would prefer a pure CSS solution (although, as I mentioned, I don't think it's possible).
