Thanks, Owen.  It doesn't seem to have any effect, though.  Here are 
some additional details:

The fill color for the frame is set to "None".
The line color for the frame -- I've set this to "Pink2", with 20% 
opacity, and redone the text entry, but the text appears with full opacity.

When I run a print preview, the preflight verifier gives a warning about 
the text frame: "Object has transparency".

The document has one layer, "Background", and all the objects are in it. 
   Do I need to create additional layers and use layer opacity to 
produce the effect desired?  That seems to work.
