gis-l: Data frame background set to none but is not transparent in export

I have multiple data frames on one page, some are overlapping.  In Arc map, the backgrounds are transparent and I can see the underlying data frames, but when I export to pdf, gif, jpg, and/or mdf, the backgrounds are white and not transparent. I have the data frame background color set to none.  Any suggestions on exporting to a format that will support the transparent backgrounds or any adjustments I should make?
