Explanation: These CSS declarations allow you to control the transparency of an object (for example, a division or image). There are multiple approaches in CSS-3.
- opacity (also thought of as an alpha value measured from 0.0 – 1.0, the former being invisible)
- rgba (measured as red, green, blue values from 0 – 255 with an alpha ranging from 0.0 to 1.0)
- hsla (hue is measured in degrees [from 0 - 360], saturation and lightness are measured from 0% – 100%, and the alpha value ranges from 0.0 to 1.0)
