I am designing a website and I have and odd problem when attempting to get my banner to display in IE. I am pretty new to CSS so my code may be inefficient (please feel free to mention how I could change something if needed). As of right now the banner (collage.jpg) shows up in Firefox where its supposed to, but in IE it doesn't show up at all.
Here is the .html file

This year the conference will be expanded to include student leaders from Indiana and surrounding states. The planning committee for the Men of Color Leadership Conference invites you to send representatives to 2005 MOC Leadership Luncheon Symposium on April 16, 2005 at the Indiana Memorial Union, Frangipani Room, from 11:00am-4pm. The purpose of this symposium is to plan the fall regional conference, tentatively scheduled for November 5, 2005, by encouraging MOC to gather and draw upon their personal experiences to support and empower themselves. The symposium and conference will provide a unique opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community leaders to discuss and engage on issues that affect their respective communities. Issues for discussion include but will not be limited to: </span></p>
<li> Black/Latino/Asian/Native American male incarceration rates compared to higher education enrollment rates
<li> How to respond and communicate to authoritarians (i.e., law enforcement, administrators, parents, etc.)
<li> Living with dogmatic stereotypes about Black/Latino/Asian/Native American males (i.e., Rap, Drugs, Relationships, Sexual Orientation, Racism, etc.)
<li> How to maintain integrity and cultural identity without assimilating
<li> How to develop unity and support among MOC
<li> There is more to life than having a wicked jump shot and selling crack rock
<li> Is “diversity” just black and white?
Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 16th, Frangipani Room, 11:00am-4:00pm for this empowering event. Seating for the Luncheon Symposium is limited to fifty and will be provided at no cost. Please RSVP by March 25th 2005 to: <a href="http://www.indiana.edu/~fase"> FASE Mentoring</a> or by phone at 812-855-3540.</p>
the only thing i could think of was that the banner area didn't have a height defined, and when u changed up the padding it gave it a height because padding:0px 0px 75px 0px; means the top is 0px the right is 0px the bottom is 75px and the left is 0px and since backgrounds start from the top up, it had no room to show it, so i bet if you took the padding away and used height:75px; you would see the banner still, so now the new padding set technically gives the banner area a height of 75px because the first number in the padding is for the top and so on
