Ive looked over the tIDE and cannot find a property to set the transparency color for each tile set ... have any one else run across this issue?

Transparency is only supported via the tilesheet images' alpha channel. A possible solution is to load your tilesheets into a paint program, mask out the colour allocated for transparency and save it to PNG format to retain the alpha channel.

On a related note, if you need to import a Mappy format map file with transparency colour, you get the option to have this masked out during the import/conversion process.
