FF displays the below URL properly, however IE, Chrome do not.

please help debug and suggest a CSS(?) fix so the page is not overlaid with transparent black.



p.s. a table plug in   is being used, not sure if that's aggravating things?

I think this will do
#wrapper {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 5px;
    width: 940px;
    z-index: 888;

Open in new window

welllll  (not quite, no change)

IE 10.0.12 is still showing it (reminder to scroll down a bit)
same for opera 12.14
chrome 32.0.1700.102 m

i believe this code is the effective/active CSS in effect:  (please advise if i missed something)

body {background: /*#000000*/ url(images/bg-tile.gif) no-repeat;}

      width: 940px;
      padding: 5px;
      margin: 0 auto;
      z-index: 888;
      background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF; /* to fix problem on jobs page, black out */
      /*background: #191919; */
