Hi - I have a background image set through CSS that shows up properly in Firefox 2 & IE7, but it doesn't render correctly in IE6.

It's the "Customer Testimonials" section at the bottom right.

Thanks in advance for any help.

/* Testimonials Style */

.sidec .quotes-quote {

	padding-right: 15px;

	padding-top: 35px;

	background-image: url(images/testimonials-top.jpg);

	background-repeat: no-repeat;

	background-position: top right;

	font-size: 7.5pt;

	color: #868686;

	padding-bottom: 5px;

	text-align: left;

	padding-left: 30px;

	display: block;

	float: none;


/* Testimonials Style */

.sidec .quotes-author {

	padding-right: 15px;

	margin-top: -20px;

	font-size: 7.5pt;

	color: #868686;

	background-image: url(images/testimonials-bottom.jpg);

	background-repeat: no-repeat;

	background-position: bottom right;

	display: block;

Try giving hasLayout to ".sidec .quotes-quote" and ".sidec .quotes-author". To understand what hasLayout is, read this:
(I discourage the use of the underscore hack, which it recommends though.)

You'll probably want to set the bottom margin on ".quotes-author p" to 0 as well.
