Olly, one of the problems you will have in NS when placing background images on tables is that NS will mess it up if you start placing pictures within these tables. IE etc handles it brilliently - you can have background images in tables with text over the top and NS will be ok - but as soon as you start placing pictures in them you'll have difficulties. I am assuming that this is with your code. also through looking at it you appear to have the background images followed by a bgcolor...have you fixed the width of the background image - otherwise it will repeat - meaning you won't be able to see the bgcoor at all. Try just having one big table with the backgrond image of the strips and then just nest tables in there widht a bgcolor of that blue you want. hope this helps Paul ps: alternatively use divs -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Olly Hodgson Sent: 23 October 2001 00:23 To: theList [evolt] Subject: [thelist] NS4 Nested Table BG problem Hi all, At http://www.gnarly.f2s.com I have a number of nested tables, some with background images, some with just bg colours. Now in IE5, Moz, and Opera5 they look great, but NS4 ignores the BGCOLOR on the most deeply nested tables and inserts the BG image from the parent table. Can anybody see a problem with my (dreamweaver) code? I've been messing around with this for ages and I cant find a solution. I saw the thread recently about how deep you can nest tables in NS4 - are mine simply too deeply nested?
