OK guys heres a tricky one

From my side - this site is finished. Done and done. It works in IE6, FF and Opera 8 and everything is absolutely fine.

or is it...

the client says he can't see the header - nor the images on the menu ... which leads me to believe he can't see ANY background images

he's using IE6 and i'm at a loss as to what could be the problem..

can anyone help me out here ? - I've never run into any such problem before (isn't my text-replacement method either, as I've only used that on the header)

thanks guys

background not showing ?

I had a banner.jpg blocked once, just because of the name. It was being blocked by internet security.

Do you have a link for us, something we can take a look at? Smile

This is my big chance . . . yep, I blew it . . .

"h1#header {"

Shouldn't this be the other way?

#header h1 {

nope - header is the ID on the h1 tag

<h1 id="header">

so if i was to refer to it as #header h1 it would try and apply the rules to an h1 inside #header

also i did have it as h1 { rules in here } but thought adding an id might fix it... guess not

also changed all my single quotes * url('image in here.jpg'); * to double quotes but havent tested this yet on the clients end

Firefox tells me this when I right click on your image and view properties . . . any help?

Actually, I see it fine in FF, but if you:

Right click on the image / View Background image / Right click on image again / Properties . . . You get that message.

Actually, that Alternate text message seems to be standard of any image in a CSS file, it is just the first time I noticed it. :oops:

Weird. . . .

ohhhhhh i see - well thats good... i thought i'd done something drastically wrong in my coding process - so thats a bit of a relief

i'm gonna have to get it back to the client and hopefully it should fix itself Smile

thanks for your help guys

as far as I know, there shouldn't be any quotes - try it and see.
