I'm using WordPress with a custom css style sheet. In some (most I think) browsers, the y-repeat gif background is only as long as the entries, instead of going down to the bottom of the page (Firefox OK, too short in IE and Safari). Here's part of the CSS:

#content {
background: url(lilies.jpg) repeat-y #F9F5E7;
text-align: left;
width: 718px;
padding: 0 0 0 160px;
float: left;
color: #666;
clear:both;
min-height: 800px;
voice-family: "\"}\"";
voice-family: inherit;
width: 558px;
}

Here's a page from the site with only one post, so you can see the problem:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

possibility

I'm not sure about the order, but here's how I've done something similiar.

background: #666666 url(images/backgroundrepeat5.jpg) repeat-y top left;

From glancing at your site you may change the left to center.

?

Thanks for the reply, but that looks very similar to the code I included in my initial post (above). I have the "repeat-y" in there. Is there something I'm missing?
