Background image won't display in IE 6 but will in Firefox (unless I hit F5 refresh everytime)


I have tried a number of things including preloading, but the background
image (water tile in header) in IE 6 will not display where other browsers
will.
http://www.officeactivate.com/web-site-design.shtml

Any ideas?
thanks.

No problems here, Firefox and IE6 both show the same image.

To show the behaviour in Windows IE6, click any of the top horizontal css
buttons, like: Home, consulting, FAQ...and you will see it.

I already did that. All pages show the same blue header background.

That's strange, as I cycle through the top horizontal nav buttons, the white
missing tile is very evident in Windows XP Pro SP2 Internet Explorer
6.0.2900.2180 xpsp_sp2. When I press F5 it then and only then loads the
complete Banner images.

No problems here. But I did notice that the space between the title and the
goldfish bowl seems to load a bit more slowly - it sort of flashes white
before reloading the image.

Hmm, when I right-click on the "Office Activate" image, the spacer
disappears. Also, I can't find it to right-click on it, even when it's
visible.

I notice in your source that you have:

<td width="584"><im g src="/images/skin/header5-2.jpg" alt="Office Activate"
width="584" height="134"></td>
<td><img src="/images/skin/spacer.gif" width="2" height="5"></td>
<td width="40"><img src="/images/skin/header5-2-right.jpg" width="145"
height="134" align=""></td>

It looks like you're using the spacer to fill in the gap between the title
and the goldfish bowl image. (header5-2.jpg and header5-2right.jpg). But
you're setting the width to only 2 pixels, and the height to 5! Is
"spacer.gif " the water image?

Two thoughts I have on that: either set it as the background for the table
cell and put &nbsp; as the cell contents, or set it's height & width to
100%. I think setting it as the background would have the better result in
this case.

I have the image as another jpg loading in the stylesheet.css as a
background image. Works in all browsers except IE 6.

#header {
margin-right:0%;
margin-left:0%;
margin-top:0%;
padding-bottom:0px;
text-align:left;
min-width:500px;
display: block;
background-repeat: repeat-x;

Looks like my two newsgroup readers on different remote locations (Outlook
express still unfortunately) posted in the wrong thread.
The website I am looking at now is http:www.officeactivate.com
And the problem is now the tile in the header is missing in IE 6.0. Should
be blue waves

Dan, of course you can keep repeating it doesn't work in IE 6.0, but
it does here, and it apparently also does for Tony. I also use the
same version of IE as you do, only on WinXP Home, not Pro.
It works on IE5 too btw.

Maybe your cache is playing up? Empty your cache and try again?
