Have you encountered this bug in IE6 with background-repeat repeat-x or repeat-y in body? If the page is in a frame it will not render the page right, instead the page becomes un-readable (if not already on the load, then atleast when you use scrollbars)… I only found out this because if you send a link to a hotmail account, the bloody hotmail opens the link to a window with frames… annoying as hell!

What I have in my css is something simple like...

body{
            background-image: url(../images/topgradientgrey.gif);
            background-repeat: repeat-x;
}


You can see the bug live at [url]http://www.interquess.com/test/ [/url]

Bug is seen atleast w/ IE6 and windows XP… works fine in opera and gecko.

Anybody had the same problem? Solutions?

Bug(?): Frames and background images in IE6

I changed the url http://www.interquess.com/test/ a bit (made it even simpler...)

There's more discussion about this at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/CSS/Q_20860329.html

So far nothing more but a bug...

Answer found...

Having background-color as well does the trick...

background-color: #fff; background-image:url(bgimage.gif); background-repeat: repeat-x;
