I laid out some pages in DreamWeaver CS3 with a background
image I applied to the page using the page properties window. The
image is set not to repeat. In older versions of Internet Explorer
the text is smeared like a bad fax where the background image ends
in the background. I ran a browser compatibility check which showed
everything is okay. When IE is updated the problem goes away. I
have not been able to confirm what version of IE is being used
because the software has been updated before I could find out.
