Alpha is stored in a single 8-bit byte, meaning there are 256 values that are possible. Consequently the values returned by this function are all multiples of 1/255. When the alpha value is initially stored the float value is rounded to the nearest multiple, turning 0.5 into 128/255 for example.
function float llGetAlpha( integer face );
