set an empty background for the tr's or the td's in the table, something like this:

<table background = ./pics/back1.jpg>
<tr background="">
<td background=""><select name = testy>
<option value = "1">1</option>
</select>
</td>
</tr>
</table>


This does work atleast when you have nested tables and the outer table has a background but the inner table hasn't.

And exactly what I wrote in the question as linked above by AvocadoIsle.

This is a common issue.  What Netscape does is put the background image in every cell.  The way to get
round this is to nest your table inside another table.  And it is important to set your background to
"" in the nested table.  So the background image is ONLY in the top level table.

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" background="bkgd.gif">
 <tr>
   <td><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" background="">
     <tr>
       <td>Your table stuff.</td>
       <td>Your table stuff.</td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
       <td>Your table stuff.</td>
       <td>Your table stuff.</td>
     </tr>
   </table></td>
 </tr>
</table>

The link above shows there is more than one way though.
