I just launched a web site @ www.santafenights.com. Silly me developed the site on Ubuntu/Firefox and didn't test properly in IE before releasing it to the public. Anyway, when I look at the page in IE 7 (maybe 5 & 6 as well) it seems to have problems loading the image @ http://www.santafenights.com/themes/garland/images/body.png, which makes the header pretty much unreadable.
There's a bit of code in there that looks like it should be a fix, but it doesn't appear to be working.
Can any kind sould tell me why I'm having this problem or offer a solution?
Thanks very much in advance for any thoughts.

Lets get the 140+ errors cleaned up first
Then we'll worry about it displaying right on certain browsers.
Thanks for your reply. I'm
Thanks for your reply. I'm kind of hesitant to fix some of those errors - none of that is my code - it's from Drupal's default theme. I'll try and work my through them, but some of them look fine to me e.g.
# Error Line 107, Column 110: document type does not allow element "input" here; missing one of "p", "h1", "h2", "h3", "h4", "h5", "h6", "div", "pre", "address", "fieldset", "ins", "del" start-tag.
The second validation error fixed it.
Now you see why we're so
Now you see why we're so adamant that code is valid first
Glad you fixed it, thanks for letting us know
