 How to make text transparent?

Does anyone know how to make text transparent?

I want to write a piece of text across a drawing (like a watermark) but still see behind it?

Any ideas?

We used an outlined font and place it on it's own layer. The layer is assigned a light lineweight. The text size is fairly large, compared to that normally used, so it does stand out.
