I think it would be nice if this was incorporated in next vm version.

it is a difficult modification.  fpdf has been on version 1.6 since 2008, but the version in vm is a heavily modified 1.52 (from 2003 I think).  I overwrote the fpdf.php file with the newest version of it then went through the old one and pulled out all the mods and placed them in the new one, knocking down error after error line by line, then we added in the new alpha script.  we now have one that is 'working' but it is ugly and I am not sure everything is rendering as it should, I think the 'flow' part is still messed up.  I can tell I still have many more hours to put into this. 

I really hope in the new vm they use a more current fpdf.  alpha pngs are not really unusual nowadays and googling this issue shows tons of people asking for this type of fix.  the particular mods made to the vm version means the standard fix does not work as is evidenced by you (and I) getting a blank screen after applying it.
