I thought it was a common issue thats why skipped the detail.

I want to specify a Background Image to a HTML page and a Table using CSS and I want it to work in Netscape 4.x Shock

BG CSS in netscape 4.7

Hmm not sure myself but - apparently background image for body works in nn4 and there is a workaround for tables.

background image for body

BODY { background-image: url(image.gif);
background-repeat: repeat;
 }

Although background repeat Y and X only partially work.

Reference: http://devedge.netscape.com/library/xref/2003/css-support/css1/mastergrid.html and others

tables also work by having a 1 cell table with background image and then nesting another table (many cells ) within it so background shines through. The trick is the inside table must be marked background = " " as per following

<TABLE BORDER="0" 
     BACKGROUND="yourPic.jpg">
  <TR>
    <TD>
    <TABLE BORDER="0" 
         BACKGROUND="">
      <TR>
        <TD> </TD>
        <TD> </TD>
      </TR>
      <TR>
        <TD> </TD>
        <TD> </TD>
      </TR>
      <TR>
        <TD> </TD>
        <TD> </TD>
      </TR>
    </TABLE>
    </TD>
  </TR>
</TABLE>

Good luck
