Background Image by Style Sheet

OK. This thing doesn't seem to work. I'm using Dreamweaver 2.
I've got these files: images/15.gif and /story.css
While modifying story.css, as usual I use the BODY tag redefinition to include the background image images/15.gif
Now, when I edit the body definition, I'm also enabled "repeat".
What happened is that when I publish the entire web in geocities, then I view it by using Netscape 4.72, the background image didn't show up tiled. What happened?
Here's the link to the style sheet:
http://www.geocities.com/vakusuma/story.css
Right now so that the page doesn't look blank in Netscape, I overrode the background image by bgcolor=yellow. Feel free to experiment with my stylesheet to see what really happened with that.
Thanks.

As far as I know we encounter these kind of problems with bgImages in Netscape. The problem is that Netscape doesn't interpret the relativ path to the images incorrect. Try to replace the path with an absolut path like http://wwww.server.com/images/bground.gif

I don't think NS reads the repeat feature for body.  Try separating your body statements into:

body {background-image: url(/images/15.gif)}
body {background-repeat: repeat}

and see if you get any better results. I don't know why it works but in the past I have had things work this way in NS.

This one mystifies me also. Using the <style type="text/css">  reference in between <head head/> commands works, but referencing an external CSS file does not.

I'm registering my interst in the correct solution, or getting a freebie answer of the back of your question - depending on the way you look at it!

sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this one, I must have missed an earlier email alert.

When you say nothing came up at all, did you mean that the background did not show at all or did you mean it did not title.  

The reason I ask is that you should have seen the background image at least.

So, bigstar, what should I do instead? Give me something that I could use...

davlun, the background didn't come up at all at Netscape.

Hey! Even though I've decided not to implement it, your suggestion was right on the mark. Thanks a lot! Hopefully next time the Netscape guys would correct this problem....
