How to make a line plot transparent?

Hi...

I found out that line objects in a plot dont respect alpha values... i.e. you cant adjust their transparency. However, this is exactly what I want to do. I have two sets of data that differ slightly, and I want to plot both these datasets with one of the sets being slightly transparent in order to highlight the difference.
Is there a way to work around this? Is it possible to use patch objects instead to construct lines so that the transparency can be adjusted? How?

Thanks!

Regards
Etienne
