View Full Version : Why does it do this to my BG in IE?

10-21-2006, 10:29 PM

I was very happy last nite as I thought I had done some major work on my page and was happy with it. Then, today, I looked at it in IE. Everything worked as I wanted it to in Firefox, but I have IE7 and wanted to make sure everything looked basically the same, since I still see the ads in IE.

In Firefox, the page works beautifully (granted, I'm not finished, but it is working the way it should regardless). I want the <div> to have a background, which stays fixed, and the <div> is set so that when there is more text, it scrolls. Well, I had the BG on No Repeat, Position Center. In Firefox, it kept the <div> as 800 high, and it kept the background where it should be, and the text scrolled, almost as if the BG was fixed, although I didn't use the fix command on my style sheet.

In IE, however, it places the back ground, not in the middle of the <div> as Firefox does, but in the middle of the text. So the whole top has no BG, and it comes at the middle of the text, then there is a large space below the BG.

Firefox did it great, IE doesn't. So what do I need to do to make it look as it renders in Firefox also in IE (and other browsers as well)? I used the 'fixed' command, but that fixed it behind everything else, and the page scrolls but the BG doesn't. Which is a neat effect to use, but not for what I'm using it for.

Please Help. I've tried everything in combination in all of the tutorials I've read, but I still can't get a combination. I've tried fixing the BG at the top, but that didn't work either. When I Fix the BG at the top, it put's it at the top of the <div>, but it scrolls with the text, unlike in Firefox. If I put it at the top and then Fix it, it doesn't work there either.

It may have something to do with your Web site displaying in quirks mode. I'm not exactly sure why it is though.
