Background color not showing in IE8

Hello CSS Experts.

I have  a div that has a white background color.  It's working fine -- except it is showing up on IE8 as transparent.  

In my next comment I will include the link  to the development site.

The div is named div.inner clearfix

It is controlled by this css in custom.css

#main > div.inner {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #ffffff;
    border: 10px solid #ffffff;
    border-radius: 10px 10px 20px 20px;
}

Looking forward to fixing this IE8 compatibility issue!

Thanks!

Add an !important to the color. Hard to tell where it is being overridden since you have !important all over the place.

p.s. do you really need 22 css files?

HI

#main > div.inner {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFffff !important;
    border: 10px solid #FFffff !important;
    border-radius: 10px 10px 20px 20px;
}

fixed it.  Thanks.

One more question.  I am seeing another IE 8 compatibility issue.  There is a banner at the top named hason-header.png.  It is also not showing in my copy of IE8.  It's "invisible"

The image is embedded in the html and I don't see it in any css specifically controlling it...
<div class="inner clearfix">
<img width="788px" height="173px" alt="" src="/templates/hasonrevised/images/hason-header.png"></div>

Open in new window


Your thoughts?

Thanks

width/height doesn't use px (when used inline like that) - just the put the number in and nothing else

HI

I replaced it with the following html

<img width="788" height="173" alt="" src="/templates/hasonrevised/images/hason-header.png">

Open in new window


But it is still not showing in IE8.   Should I just remove the height and width attributes altogether?

Or should I do the header image via css for better compatibility???

Thanks

Take all this
<div id="banner">
    <div class="inner clearfix">
      <div class="logobloc" id="bannerlogo">
        <div class="inner clearfix">
                      <img width="788" height="173" alt="" src="/templates/hasonrevised/images/hason-header.png">
                            </div>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>

Open in new window


and replace with
<img width="788" height="173" alt="" src="/templates/hasonrevised/images/hason-header.png">

Open in new window

p.s. do you really need 22 css files?   Hee hee!   Obviously not, but for now I'm "stuck" with them..  :)

Thanks again.  BTW I have another css question here if you have time to dig into  it...
