Adding to Dov Isaacs' reply:

Using Presentation Assistant (FM-to-Acrobat TimeSavers add-on), 
transparency is supported with rectangles (of different types), circles, 
JPEG images, and -- on a limited basis -- with text strings.
All items are inserted/controlled through hypertext markers. For text items 
(typically one-line strings), you can specify the font, size, color and 
blending mode.

A sample PDF is available at 
http://www.microtype.com/showcase/PresentAsst/TransparentButton.pdf

PDF blending modes are similar to those available in Photoshop (see 
http://www.microtype.com/showcase/PresentAsst/Transparentbutton-BlendModes.pdf 
)
