Microsoft uses the concept of a "mask" color to create apparent transparency. However, the transparency is created by the application and is not inherent in the bitmap AFAIK.

HTH,

I know this is a little off topic...

Anybody have any BMP files with transparency and/or know of any application that can read/write bmp files with transparency?
