Halo of features

I would like to create a 'halo' like effect around a polygon feature. The halo effect is represented by a gradual colour from transparent to white (e.g., land with surrounding ocean). How can I do that in ArcMap?

Best regards,

Mapping Center Answer:

We called this effect, the Fade to White effect and have documented the procedure on the Mapping Center Blog with an entry called Fade to white background effect.
