The path in the CSS is wrong.
You're thinking that the index.html file is in the root directory of this beta site hence the root relative reference in the CSS.
However, as far as the server is concerned, the root directory (where the index file is located) of this beta site is in a subfolder called "staging".
The CSS in the body selector for the background is pointing to /Assets/qlogoBKGlt.gif.
The full address of that path is http://www.solterrasolarcells.com/Assets/qlogoBKGlt.gif but the Assets folder does not exist at root level on the server, hence no image appears.
So for a root-relative path, you need to prefix the CSS with the "staging" folder
or for a document-relative path from the "styles" folder where the CSS file is located, go up a level:
When the site goes live, the "staging" folder will presumably disappear (all files will come up a level) and therefore any root relative links will have to be altered to reflect that.

In addition to John's post...
If you're seeing the background image in DW, then DW is somehow building a path to the file. You may have specified your Site with a Root Directory of "staging". If so, then maybe you can't see the image in the browser because you are trying to view the file directly and locally. Site-root relative paths need to be resolved either by your server or by DW via a "Temp" file. Try either previewing from your server or using a Preview in Browser Temp file.
Thanks John...the relative addressing was my ticket! Thanks to the others that read and/or replied! --bill
