problems with transparency

When I sent the layout to the plotter with data associated to transparency, they show blank n(white color) on my hard copy.  Any ideas?  Thanks a lot!

Mapping Center Answer:

Unfortunately we do not support the idea of transparent data frames--only layers.   If you have two data frames such that they overlap, and if the top one has any transparency, it will draw to white, blocking the lower data frame.
