Am working on a project for college (my final in fact) and have my site coded so it is validated XHTML and CSS but am having some issues on IE displaying the background correctly in the content area. The layout of the site is as follows:
Total container is 800 X 640
The header is at top of course.
The navigation menu area is positioned on the left of the screen
The content area is on the right portion and has a background that changes according to what page you are viewing (each page has an inline statement that declares a different background)
The footer is at the bottom of the page
The problem I have is that IE is not recognizing the inline background statement. The statement I'm putting in is as follows:
<div id="content" style="background-image: url(images/contentback3.jpg)">
Shouldn't this override the background-image statemen in my external stylesheet? Each page has this with a different contentback#.jpg specified per page. It works fine with Firefox but with IE it only displays the file specified in the external stylesheet. If necessary I can provide my stylesheet and html upon request. You may also view the site at its temporary home at http://www.ufp-squad.com/leroyacres/
Thank you again.
