Hello everyone.

I have a background image being governed by a CSS and called from a TABLE tag. The code is as follows.

TABLE.Tinkertoy
{
PADDING-LEFT: 0px;
BACKGROUND: url(..\images\splashbanner.gif) #3775a6 fixed no-repeat right center;
PADDING-BOTTOM: 0px;
MARGIN: 0px;
PADDING-TOP: 0px
}

Netscape 7.1 refuses to acknowledge the graphic entirely. What can I do to modify or otherwise work around this issue? Thanks!

CSS governed background images not showing in NN 7.1

I think the syntax should be
BACKGROUND: url(../images/splashbanner.gif)

No, that wasn't it.

You can see the site at benelogic.com. I'm optimizing for NN 7.1 and Firefox and while I've taken care of the other issues on my local (like the nav bar problem), I can't seem to get my head around this background image problem.

Still, thanks for trying. =-)

Check your path and or code..
when I try to view your images I get a page not found
http://www.benelogic.com/css/..imagessplashbanner.gif

if I change the css to BACKGROUND: url(../images/splashbanner.gif)
I can view the image...
but I don't think that's the entire problem since I can see it in IE6 w/o making the change.

you have no doctype declared so this might be a problem as well

The css is in another folder in that directory, so that's why you pulled the 404. Try benelogic.com/images/splashbanner.gif and you'll pull that background image.

I even tried an absolute path and it didn't work, but I'll keep hammering away at it. Thanks again. =-)

Just trying to find the correct path... this is what I find for the path in order to view the picture
http://www.benelogic.com/images/splashbanner.gif
however that doesn't work in the css either
I think I've got an idea... got to run an errand now... check back with you in awhile

Getting rid of fixed in the Tinkertoy declaration does the trick..
Might cause some other issues but at least you can see the splashbanner.gif now

Thank you! That did the trick. I'm not sure why the 'fixed' element would cause a disruption in the browser's ability to view the graphic, though. Odd, that. Anyways, thank you again, rmfred.
