 Hi Lyx users,

 Using the Memoir class with a two-column document, and inserting a box
 (simple frame, page breaks), how can the background of the box be made
 shaded?

It was suggested on comp.text.tex that I use the mdframed package, but
I've not been able to figure out how to use it with Lyx.

I've already finished a book, using simple framed boxes with page breaks many 
times to emphasize
special text, so I'm hoping for something to put in the preamble to shade the 
background of all of these boxes for further emphasis.
