Greetings evolters

I've got a bit of a display problem when viewing a page on IE for the Mac 
(ie 5.5 I think).

I'm using tables to keep the navigation and text separate and I've set a 
background image for the row where I've got the text. Herein lies the 
problem - shows up perfectly on NN6.2 but IE isn't showing the background 
image (yes there is text there).

I've found a work-around if I put the background image on the <td> tag as 
well it displays on IE

Snip of code here:
<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center" 
          <td align="center">
            <img src="images/logo-top.gif" width="206" height="38">
        <tr background="images/table-bg.jpg">

Any idea how to get this to work without having to put the image on the <td> 
tag as well?

Thanks in advance
