have background image show thru div

I have two layers of div inside a td

<table background="bg.gid">
<tr>
<td>
  <div id=leftmenau>
    <div>item1</div>
    <div>item2</div>
  </div>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

The background image only shows outside the upper div. how do you make it show thru the two layers of divs?
