I changed your style tag to this:
<style type="text/css"><!--

body {
	background-color: #FFFFFF;
	background-image: url(images/ph_bg.gif);
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
	margin : 0px;
	padding : 0px;
.bodybottom {
	background-color: #FFFFFF;
	background-image: url(images/bottom_bg.gif);
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
	margin : 0px;
	padding : 0px;

and it now does what I think you are asking it to do...in IE 5.

My primary workstation is out-of-commission while I wait for a new hard
drive from IBM...and I don't have netscape anything on my laptop...I would
hardly expect netscape to take a style tag seriously enough to render a page
the way it's supposed to though, so make sure you test in that 'browser'.

<tip type = "backup your important stuff">
Haven't invested in backup media/software? You're playing with fire! As
reliable as computers are these days, they still fail. How screwed would you
be if you lost your primary work source directory?

Windows 2000 has a built in backup feature that I just learned about...a
little too late. There are numerous other 3rd party products good for the
same functionality.

When I can get humpty back together again, I will begin a discplined backup
routine and follow through with it every day...losing files (or even
thinking you've lost files) is just not worth it.
