I am working on web site with a background graphic for the Page Properties.
The graphic shows fine in Firefox, but does not show at all in Internet Explorer.

Would xhtml be causing this?

If not, what?

One more thing.

Found a nastly little gotcha.  If I detach the a file from the template, open in Frontpage and manually insert the background graphic, it then works in IE and Firefox.

I spotted something...

at line 34 to 36:

</NOSCRIPT>    </tr>
  <tr background="/images/blue-brown-background-horizontal.gif">
    <td height="47" colspan="4"><blockquote>

try change it to:

</NOSCRIPT>    </tr>
  <tr>
    <td height="47" colspan="4" background="/images/blue-brown-background-horizontal.gif"><blockquote>

is this working now for your IE browser?

That did fix the problem (eetest2.html).

Okay, now, is there a way to control that in Dreamweaver?

>>is there a way to control that in Dreamweaver?
yes, my editor is also Dreamweaver, i'm not sure how to asnwer you this question... what you can try is put the cursor on the table's cell, and set the cell background (Bg) there.

for debugging your problem, i save a full set of content on both ie and firefox, and then doing the comparison and amendment there, just like a trail and error process...

Good luck, regards
