Hi, I realized that I made a mistake:

>         Element.extend(document.body);
>         document.body.insert({bottom: newDiv}).setOpacity(0.5);

should have been

           document.body.insert({bottom: newDiv});

Now, setOpacity works the way it should. Thanks Tobie for your response.
Without it, I don't think I would have caught that mistake. Sorry about
