[OS X TeX] White vs. Transparent?

Thanks for the pointer.  It accomplished what I wished.

Still, there is clearly a difference between "white" and "transparent". 
For example, equations dragged from LaTeXIt have a transparent or 
nonexistent or whatever background, while in all previous methods I have 
used the pdf's generated have a white background.  (Hell, taking one of 
LaTeXIt's eqn pdfs and opening it in GraphicConverter and re-saving 
turns the transparent background to white.)

Is there any tool for going the other way?  Or any way in pdftex to tell 
it to produce a transparent background?

Fair enough, but to be fair, when I asked it I wasn't sure whether it 
was a TeX question, a pdf question, a LaTeXiT question, or what.  (It 
would be nice if LaTeXiT let you set a background color as easily as the 
text color!)
