I sent this message 10/17 but, due to some problems with email, it never got
through. So, think things are fixed now ... and am re-sending it.

I have since redone the background image to lengthen it's height which
solved the problem re I.E., but I'm still curious as to whether anyone else
has run into this situation.

--Original message:
"Am working on a site where, strangely, the background image stretches
beautifully vertically in NN4.7 and N6.1 but not in I.E. 5.5. I have set it
as  background-repeat: no-repeat ;  background-position:  0px 0px ;  in the
remote CSS file's Body element. The image's dimensions are 1280 wide x 3200

Any ideas as to why I.E. is behaving this way?"

This was the referral URL in my original message, but I had to fix it so it
looked presentable.
