Webview with Transparent BG

Hi Folks,

Is it possible to have a webview with a transparent BG? I was hoping to display html (just text and some h1/h2 tags) in a scrollview with a transparent BG so i can see the background of the app itself! All works fine apart from the current white background! :(

(Tried setting body background: transparent; in the css of the webview as i thought i saw that mentioned somewhere.. no luck!)

Thanks! :)

    You can had backgroundColor transparent in your webview :

    var win = Titanium.UI.currentWindow;
    win.backgroundColor = '#B5D5FF';
    var web = Titanium.UI.createWebView({html:'<html><body><h1>some test</h1></body></html>',backgroundColor:'transparent'});
