Hidden navigation on test in IE5x

Hi Guys/Gals,
I posted a thread yesterday but with some persistence I think I've got half the problem solved. When I test my page in IE5x the navigation moves behind the header image. Today I tested the same page in safari and this problem did not occur. In safari I also noticed that my bottom image is beginning to repeat, just one strip. I do have no-repeat in my code. Any reason why these are happening?

Love to get your response,

Without the complete code or a link we can only guess.
I really see no reason to worry about supporting IE5.

Hi drhowarddrfine,

I value your response, opinions and comments. I must reiterate though, that I am a graphic artist turning to web designer, so I am relatively new to CSS. because of its precise positioning I can have control on almost everything I do. Having said that here is the problem I am encountering.



#wrapper {
width: 720px;
margin-right: auto;
margin-left: auto;
position: relative;
font-family: Verdana;
text-align: left;

#headnav {
position: absolute;
left: 20px;
top: 102px;
width: 549px;
height: 56px;
margin: 0;

#header {
width: 700px;
height: 221px;


<div id="wrapper">
<div id="header"><img src="images/centerimages/bgtop.jpg" alt="#"></div>
<div id="headnav">
<li class="button_1"><a href="#"></a></li>
<li class="button_2"><a href="#"></a></li>
<li class="button_3"><a href="#"></a></li>
<div class="page">
<div class="col_A">
<img src="images/centerimages/bgmiddle.jpg" alt="">

Again any and all help is appreciated.

The reason this is probably happening is because the header is positioned 'absolutely'. This removes that element from the normal flow, allowing other elements to rise up into that position.

I cannot check it in Safari because, like I said before, we need the 'complete' code to do this.
