Do you have any other elements with the same id (td1)? Can you post the full page? We need to see if anything else is interfering or if the cascade is being applied differently in IE.

I can't see any issues with your code it works in all IE versions the same. Do you have the full HTML source code of your page so that i can view it?

It seems that IE doesn't like your short hex code if i change that it works like it should:

<td bgcolor='#69c'>

Change that to:
<td bgcolor='#6699cc'>

Open in new window


And 1 other thing your code doesn't seem to be valid i get a lot of errors in Dreamweaver, unclosed HTML and so on, this can also be an issue, especially when you want to have this working cross-browser.

Also note that you use a XHTML doctype and you also use HTML4 code in it, like the <b> tag, use <strong> instead. Validate your HTML http://validator.w3.org/

You are also using multi #td1, use an ID once on an element, use class if you want to add it on multiple elements, otherwise this will cause issues in several browsers. Same goes for you input buttons both have the same ID Btnprint, add a .class instead use that ID only once, it can happen that things get submitted twice.

Here is your HTML but valid:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC '-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN' 'http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd'>
