Not exactly. However, for a given element, its background-color value is
visible where an image is transparent. The problem is getting it all to
work. For example, you'd need to size the element to match the image's
dimensions exactly (in all browsers), or the illusion would be broken.
Also, unless I am confused, you would need a document with a solid
background color (to match in the non-transparent part of your image). As
if that isn't enough, you would probably need to use a bunch of <span>
tags to style the images. It's just a mess (although technically possible
IMO). You might be better off making a bunch of images in different
colors, unless that isn't possible for some other reason. And I say that
as someone who hates making little images.

In my experience, ASCII characters are universally supported. Unless ASCII
means something other than what I think it does in this context.
