Text field over photo

I want to display a line of text -- in a field, over a photo. The loc of the field will scroll down. I want the text to be as legible as possible, but the photo will vary. I'm wondering about the best way to make the text legible.

What do you suggest?

--A black font with a white outline? Or white font with a black outline? Can someone recommend such a font?

--Maybe a field with a semi-transparent white background? If this is recommended, I can't quite figure out how to set the background of a field to a semi-transparent color. A fuzzy edge around such a background would be even better. Suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
