May I ask what for? You can achieve this using CSS in many cases. That aside,
on a humorous note perhaps, it is common tool among spyware vendors and
spammers -- one transparent pixel or one that mixes with the background for
HotLinking. I know you from other groups already, so just to clarify, the OP
is definitely not doing any of that...

Yes, I tend to do that too. The RGB route is rather easy. Then, you choose
the size of the pallette, when saving.

I suppose Henning has answered these questions already.
