    I might be wrong but I think that background: transparent is a valid css declaration.

    Nope.

    Doesn't place a background, but not valid...

    for your information all of it was built in IE 5 sorry if it doesn't meet your approval. And to make the background of a text area transparent in IE 5 you can simply place this tag in the text section itself.

    <textarea name="COMMENTS " rows="11" cols="28" style="background:none;border:0;">Welcome!</textarea>


    and it dissappears. As for the strange hover colors I don't know what your talking about .

    Did you ever think it could just be your browser?

    Instead of my web site!

    http://www.freewebs.com/dhcs/funmail/funmail.html has various e-mail forms combined with transparent elements, special input text fonts etc. But as I stated before it was all built in IE5.0 most of it only works in IE

    Like I said - that's not valid.

    You could just put background: crystal-clear; and it would do the same thing.


    And the strange colours... it's your site.

    Checked on IE5.0

    Because, the browser won't put a background image on it automatic...

    And the browser will ignore any code it does not understand...

    So, if you put:

    background:none;
    background:crystal-clear;

    or nothing at all...

    It will all do the same thing. If it's not valid, then don't use it.



    And online or offline has nothing to do with it.

    C1lonewolf,

    You could use a validator to check your code to shake any invalid stuff out; IE5 is known for its benevolence to display code, ANY code, as best as possible, but other and newer browsers may very well be far stricter so other visitors may not be able to view your pages correctly.
    You can also imagine a browser having to work hard to iron out coding errors not being as fast as desired in displaying those pages.
    Regards,
    Ronald.
