Here's the URL http://188.8.131.52/wssite/5/indexIE.php (IE - this is how it should look.. still has a few JS bugs I will look over after I resolve the browser issue) http://184.108.40.206/wssite/5/indexNS.php (Netscape - Check this in IE also to see what I mean) It's going totally berserk! As soon as I put the style tag, in the table tag, the other layers align at the bottom, but when I take it off from the CONTENT section, things are back to normal... normal meaning the layout resolves but the background still doesn't repeat. <rant> Given, I can work around this using style sheets, it still bothers me that NS doesn't support repeating GIFs and even more so that it doesn't support transparency in PNGs! I feel like NS doesn't deserve the effort I put in to make my site comply with their standards... only if the users knew! </rant> -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of aardvark Sent: December 10, 2001 12:46 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] NS Repeating Background Problem > From: "Aleem" <aleem at mindless.com> > > Hi, I am stuck with a problem which seems quite simple... > Can someone please tell me how to get transparent GIFs to repeat in > the background in NS communicator (4.78 to be specific). i'm not having any problems developing things that do that... got a URL so perhaps i can see? > It won't support repeating GIFs, but it does support repeating JPGS. > It won't support transparencies in PNGs either so that option is no > good.

[...] actually, NN4.x *does* support some of the CSS properties for background image, such as repeat... i even show some code for it in: Liquid Design for the Web http://evolt.org/article/list/20/15177/ i have similar code doing this, and avoiding the nested tables background bug in NN4.x at (home page only): http://quantumcms.com/ shout if none of this helps... --------------------------------------- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of TheList go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
