Have you seen this? I have it. Would you like a screenshot? _ollie -----Original Message----- From: Charles Johnson [mailto:cfj at mac.com] Sent: Tuesday, January 30, 2001 5:13 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Update on missing table cell background problem Some of you may have seen the discussion about the problem I'm having at: http://www.surfacademy.org where *some* people running Netscape 4.x under *some* versions of Windows can't see the table cell backgrounds I've set up. It's no problem for Netscape Mac, and no problem for some Windows users. The ones who see the problem seem to be using either W2K or NT. I haven't been able to reproduce the problem myself on Mac or PC, but I don't have easy access to a W2K or NT system. Well, with Manuelita Beck's help, I discovered that if I make the background image a JPEG rather than a GIF, Netscape displays it just fine! At first I thought my long winter of netscape discontent was over...but... The image has a lot of solid white, and alternating one-pixel stripes of 2 different web-safe blue colors. I'm sure you know what the JPEG format does with an image like that. Gotta save it at 90% quality or better to get rid of the artifacting, but no setting will stabilize the colors. The white comes out as #FCFCFC with blotches of #FEFEFE. Not good. It really needs to be a GIF. So I'm back to square one. Has anyone ever heard of something like this? Or have you used GIFs as table cell backgrounds in Netscape W2K and had it work? If so I'd love to hear from you. I'd love to hear from anyone with a suggestion, no matter how wacky. I've already tried lots of wacky stuff myself to fix it. Hell, Netscape is a wacky browser. (I'm getting a little wacky myself.) And a million thanks to everyone who's tried to help already...
