Firefox not displaying table background color

Hi all,
I am having quite a time with Firefox. It refuses to display the background color of my table. I am at a loss as to why. I have validated the code and the errors were all in reference to the flash object. I wouldn't expect that to cause this type of problem. The html is below.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

<style type="text/css">
body {
margin-left: 0px;
margin-top: 0px;
margin-right: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px;
body,td,th {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
.style2 {font-size: 12px}

<table width="1025" bgcolor="000033" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
<td height="17" colspan="3" valign="top"><img src="images/upperTop.jpg" width="1024" height="17" /></td>
<td width="1"></td>
<td width="304" rowspan="2" valign="top"><img src="images/leftLogo.jpg" width="304" height="131" /></td>

<td height="26" colspan="2" valign="top"><img src="images/leftBannerBottom.jpg" width="310" height="26" /></td>

Any help is appreciated.

You need a # before your background color; for instance,

black is #000000, not 000000
