Transparency of Divs

Hi all,

I have a page that holds a div which I have made transparent so the
background image (or colour) is visible through it.

The following code was used:

filter: alpha(opacity=60);
opacity: 0.6;

So no big deal and it works for Firefox and IE but how do I implement
a similar feature in Opera and Safari? What is the extra markup
required for these two browsers?

Also, if I use the CSS panel in Dreamweaver where do I find those
options to set the filter and opacity i.e no typing of code as I am
far too lazy?

opacity: 0.6 should work (not quite right but not so you'd notice) in
Opera, and I would have thought also in Safari.
