    Question Large background image not displaying correctly in IE6

    Hi I'm attempting to make a CSS Zen Garden entry where I am using a large background image in the body tags style rule. Although this works and displays how I want it in all the latest browsers (Firefox, Opera, IE8) it doesnt in the infamous buggy as hell IE6, when viewed in IE6 the backgrounds bottom area repeats along the top and everything seems to be shifted up quite substantially. I have an suspicion its to do with absolute positioning but I'm not sure. Does anyone know how I could fix this?

    Heres a link to the page and the page's CSS

    Hello karlosio,
    Can't see the site right now...
    The CSS shows you've set the background: url(img/my_008/background.jpg) repeat left bottom;
    Change that to no-repeat if you don't want it to repeat.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
