As was pointed out by Dan, gif transparency is an all or nothing
deal and only works with one color.
One way to simulate it with gifs is to create a checkerboard
pattern of 2 by 2 pixels, alternating black and white. Then add
a layer mask to your image and bucket fill the mask using the
checkerboard pattern. It will render every other pixel in your
image transparent and allow content beneath to show through. It
isn't nearly as smooth as png alpha transparency, but it works.
