UIWebView background is set to Clear Color, but it is not transparent

I'm developing an iOS 4 application using iOS SDK latest version and XCode 4.2.

I have a XIB with a

with Alpha = 1.0, Background set to Clear Color and Opaque is not set. On this XIB I setup an image as background with this code:

- (id)initWithNibName:(NSString *)nibNameOrNil bundle:(NSBundle *)nibBundleOrNil
self = [super initWithNibName:nibNameOrNil bundle:nibBundleOrNil];
if (self) {
UIColor *background = [[UIColor alloc] initWithPatternImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"AboutBackground.png"]];
self.view.backgroundColor = background;
[background release];
return self;

is showing an static html:

<html><head></head><body style=\"margin:0 auto;text-align:center;background-color: transparent; color:white\">...</body></html>

On iOS 5 simulator, its background is transparent, but on an iOS 4 device is grey.

Any clue?
