# To subscribers of the xforms list from Steve Lamont <firstname.lastname@example.org> :

Yes, as per the manual, p. 247 (my copy of the manual is Dated Jan 2000).

`tran' is a boolean flag. If non-zero, it means that the text is
written "transparently," that is, without a background. Again, this
is in the manual on page 247. `bcolor' is ignored if `tran' is true
(non-zero). `tcolor' is the color of the text.
> tx & ty are pixels from the origin? The reason I'm asking is that they're

This is because there's a possible scale factor applied to the `tx'
and `ty' values.

No and yes, respectively. At least, sort of.
The image annotation is not written to the image until it is rendered
to a Window or Pixmap. Refer to the section entitled "Pixelizing the
Annotation" for details.
