Today I viewed my website from someone else's office, and the background image did not load under IE8.  Their computer did render the background normally under Firefox.  My website is at www.mauitradewinds.com and it uses a background image, background.jpg  This background always appears on the computers in my office, under IE 7, 8 and 9.  I wonder if this is a coding issue or something unique to the other person's system?   I am in the process of updating the website, and eventually the background will be declared with css.  In the meanwhile, I would like visitors to the website to see the background image instead of a dull, gray page.

I've run this in IE 5.5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 and the background loads fine in each.
I've also run in Chrome, Firefox 6 and 9 (nightly) and it all loads fine.

At the other office, did you try reloading the page via shift+f5?
Did you refresh the browser cache and clean out temporary internet files?

You code is using a background on the body tag. This is fairly simple and I don't see it as a coding issue.

Thank you both for your tests and comments.  The other office was a Fedex-Kinkos.  I couldn't refresh the browser cache and clear out TIF.  However, I'm sure that computer has never visited my website before.  I'll take it that this is an uncommon occurrence and the background image usually loads properly.
