Transparent rendering in RMarkdown

Hi - I have a question regarding the new gt package. I have a background image in an RMarkdown document. 90% of the RMD in this case is taken up by a gt table. Due to this, it obscures a huge amount of my background image as it appears gt tables are not transparent - see two tables below, you can see where the gt table begins as it cuts off the purple background image

I noticed in the documentation (the documentation is great by the way!) there is an alpha argument like so:

gt(df) %>% 
   style = cell_fill(alpha=0),
   locations = cells_body()

however this does not appear to work when rendering in the RMD file. Have I missed something? I've tried background="transparent" in the markdown renderer but still no good

thanks! really enjoying using the package so far.
