    Continued background problem

    arstart

      First, let me thank the two gentlemen who took time to look at my previous post on this problem. As suggested, I renamed the background jpg taking out the space which had previously resulted in a 20% sign in the code. Dreamweaver automatically repointed the pages to the renamed jpg. But ------- no luck. Same problem.

      So, I decided to make another page with nothing on it but a short text in color and a standard colored background instead of a jpg image background. I was shocked to see that the page shows up on the net as plain white with black text.

      Here is the code for the trial page:
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
      " http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
      <html>
      <head>
      <title>Untitled Document</title>
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
      <style type="text/css">
      <!--
      body {
      background-color: #CCFF66;
      }
      body,td,th {
      color: #3366FF;
      }
      .style1 {font-size: 36px}

      -->
      </style></head>

      <body>
      <span class="style1">This is text.
      </span>
      </body>
      </html>

      Here is the url: www.lonestarfold.com - go to the shipping button. That takes you to the new trial page.

      Still puzzled in Texas. Any suggestions??

          I'm not clear on what you are seeing.

          What browser and OS are you using?

          Here's what I see..............as expected. IE6/Win XP Pro SP2.

              That is the wierdest thing I have seen in a long time. Some computers can see the background and others can't. Would it have anything to do with screen resolution? And if so, how would I go about fixing that?

                Best practice dictates that you not use spaces in file/pathnames -

                <img src="Contact%20button.JPG"

                I would fix that.

                Your page background is specified here -

                <style type="text/css">
                <!--
                body {
                background-image: url(ruralbackground.jpg);
                }
                -->
                </style>

                The image is 1024x138px, and weights 17K.

                If you added -

                background-repeat:repeat-y;

                to your stylesheet, you could crop that image down to the widest dimension
                of the cat frame.

                I see no reason why this image is not shown on any computer. Perhaps those
                who don't see it don't understand what you mean when you say "background
                image"?
