usage of background atribute in other tags than body was never HTML standard, even a lot of browsers aloow it, w3c has marked it as "depricated". You should use CSS instead:

  <td style="background-image:url(images/book-big.jpg);background-repeat:no-repeat;">

AFAIK, Netscape 4.x does not support CSS in tables at all.

Or do it the way everybody else does...

Make a one-cell table to contain your MAIN table, give that CELL a background image, and in all the cells of your main table use
td background=""

DO NOT use a graphic editor, or if you must, don't freak when it doesn't display the way you think. It WILL work in the browser -- both of them. ;-)

It's not that.. it's the mixing of pixels and percentage. Don't do that within one table. You can have a table set in pixels, and another table in that set in percentages, but not both in the same table.

it's Netscape 4.x !
it does not support background in tables (and this is not a bug, just implemented as w3c recommends, years ago ...)

Thx you very much
