Seems to be to do with the height attribute on #wrap, set it to auto and min-height:100%,

the attribute: language="javascript" is not allowed in strict XHTML.  That is probably the source of the prob.

 Change your !DOCTYPE to <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/transitional.dtd">  and see if that works.

you have background color for #content. it overrides your background image which is in a containing tag.

should be like this:

#content{
	margin:0;
	padding:10px;
	text-align:left;
	position:relative;
	min-height:100%;
	overflow: auto;
}
