I am trying to convert a classic ASP website into ASP.NET.  I want to use Master Pages so I started to create the Master Page with the elements that will appear on every page.  The problem I am having is that the background image in my CSS is not displaying as expected.  I am including  a code sample of a test.aspx page that I am using just to get header working.

Here is the relevant CSS that is included in my Styles/styles.css file

/* CSS Document */

/* CSS common to all pages - layout */
* {
  margin: 0;
}
html, body {height:100%}
body {
	padding:0;
	margin:0;
	background-color: #006699;
	color: #000000;
	font: 14px "Trebuchet MS", Verdana, sans-serif;
}
#outer{
	min-height:100%;
	min-width: 800px;
	margin-left:175px;
	margin-right:155px;
	background-color: #dee4fe;
	border-left:15px solid #ffd666;
	margin-bottom:-52px;
	color: #000000;
}
* html #outer{height:100%;} /* IE6 and under treat height as min-height anyway*/
#header{
	background:#ffd666;
	border-bottom:15px solid #ffd666;
	color: #000;
	text-align:left;
	position:relative;
	margin-bottom: 0;
	margin-left: 0px;
	margin-right: -154px;
	margin-top: 0;
	min-height:0;/* ie 7 haslayout fix */
	background-image:url(images/background.jpg);
	background-repeat:repeat;
}

Open in new window


Here is the page layout:

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

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
    <link href="Styles/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div id="outer"> 
        <div id="header"><p>this is the header</p></div>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>

Open in new window


Any help with this will be appreciated!  I just need to know what I am doing wrong that the background is not showing up.

Are you aware that the URL reference is relative to the CSS file, not the document itself?  I have a feeling that is the issue.
