Hi. I've just been recently experimenting with CSS. I don't get why I can't see it after I've uploaded the page. There's supposed to be a background photo on the page (I use Dreamweaver MX), but it doesn't show up. Instead, only the plain color does. What am I doing wrong?

Help would be very much appreciated. Thanks so much!!!

background image

Hi,
We really need some more information, a link would be great, to find a solution to your problem.
Have you checked the address of the background image.

HELP Please!!

Hi... Thanks for the reply, and sorry for the lack of info. I just took down the page, but once I get it up back again, I'll post the URL here...

But do all browsers show CSS? On Dreamweaver, I tried to convert the HTML page to one that is 3.0 Broswer Compatible, and the CSS doesn't appear. I understand that not all CSS styles can be converted to HTML, so does that mean that I should veer away from HTML and use server tech instead?

Thanks heaps!

Not all browsers support CSS and many only support parts of it.
Css Support Chart

One of the great benefits of CSS is that it degrades gracefully.
In other words, if a browser doesn't support CSS the page will still be displayed and the content will still be visible.

For example the CSS Creator Home page then again viewed through a text only browser .
Although it looks a little boring the content is still readable.
