Do you have "Show Stylesheets" turned off in your prefs? The difference with
this version is that the cell backgrounds were moved into the external CSS
file (as classes for the TD tag), like this:

td.panel {
  background-image: url(/home/panel/top_bg.gif);

and it seems to work OK for me in both IE and Netscape. I don't have IE5.5
installed here, but I thought it was pretty good with this kind of CSS. Even
Mac Netscape 4.75 can handle it (which surprised me).

Also, make sure to clear your browser cache -- the old CSS file may still be
in there since you looked at the page previously.
