RE: Transparent plot color?

I use Plot3D[ ] to plot 2 surfaces together,
one mostly obscuring the other.
I would like to set the front-most plot's
DefaultColor to "Transparent", so I could
see its grid lines, but see the other plot
behind it.

I haven't seen any way to do this.
Is it possible?

p.s. Even better would be to be able to set
it to a translucent color.

A demonstration of how to simulate transparent colored graphics is given at
http://support.wolfram.com/Graphics/ThreeD/Transparency.html


Also the following will make a graphics using a transparent wire mesh.


gr1=Plot3D[Sin[x y],{x,0,Pi},{y,0,Pi},
     HiddenSurface->False];

However, I can't get the transparent wire mesh to work when I try to show
the graph above and another graphic made with Plot3D.  Any ideas on how to
get that working?
