This works in Mozilla 1.2b (using another image). Are you sure the URL
is right (the two "r"s look a bit weird)?

"Align" affects only the elements children. The background is part of
the TD, not a child of it. Try adding this rule to position the
background image in the top right of the cell:
 background-position: right top;
