Hehe, that title don't say much, eh ? Well, the problem isn't hard to describe. There is this site wich is build from a 780x500px pic and the bodybackground is some kind of blue, and the content is shown in an iframe...Now the text on this page is kind of yellow/white and the background on each page is transparnet in order for the pic to show thrugh...

The problem is one viewer say he can't see anything else but the yellow/white text...I do not get that, is the kind of browser, and/or OS an issue here...PLEASE, help me with some suggestions to what this might depend upon...

A dilemma I can't solve...backgroundcolor and pic...

For starters, try taking out the bgcolor declaration (and all other style declarations) from the body tag, and place them in the CSS:

body
{
background-color: #3A3A65;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

Which browser is your friend using? Seems a bit strange that they can't see any style which is styled in the HTML itself.

The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Discuss...

A dilemma I can't solve...backgroundcolor and pic...

I don't know what browser he uses...I've asked but gotten no reply. But the only way I can achieve what he does is to right click on each button/link and open the link up in a new page...I do not get why this happen....

Wait, could it be that he prolly has an older version of IE ? I have something in the back of my head concerning a page I did a cupla months ago, built the same way, before I got into css Wink...A friend of mine had IE, but an older version, and he couldn't view that page until he upgraded IE to the latest version...Could it be so simple ?

It just might, this fella' who's having problem now isn't...eh, used to computors, have had it for a year or three, and I bet he hasn't gotten a new version of anything in his PC...I'll check it out...

If anything pop's into your head, will you post here...? ¨

That was going to be my next question, whether they had a different browser/older browser. Try taking all the javascript out to test as well (there are a few comment tags used in the javascript, just wondering if this causes problems).

It would have to be a pretty old browser though for certain HTML styles not to show!
