Opera and No Repeat

P: n/a
Hello-
I've created a page and have a table with a no repeating background.
Works in all but Opera.

Any ideas?

Here's the style sheet:
..tdnavbg {
background-color: #000000;
background-image: url(images/nav_bg.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
}
..tdbgtopmain {
background-image: url(images/creating_header.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
}
..copyright {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight: normal;
color: #FFFFFF;
text-align: center;
}
p {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-style: normal;
color: #FFFFFF;
text-align: justify;
white-space: normal;
}
..pcenter {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-style: normal;
color: #FFFFFF;
white-space: normal;
background-position: center;
}

Thank you.

Figured it out!
I dropped the tag into the TR instead of the TD.
DUH!
Thanks.

Looks fine here (Opera 7.23/Linux).

In the debugging process, validation comes before asking others for help.

Maybe we need to post a message with a big FAQ in it every once in a
while, basically telling folks stuff like:

Q.
How should I ask a question here in c.i.w.a.s.?

A.
1) Validate your HTML (http://validator.w3.org/) and your CSS
(/jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/) to help eliminate structural errors.
2) Triple-check your code and CSS for obvious errors.
3) Search this newsgroup
(http://groups.google.com/groups?&gro...ng.stylesheets)
for recent discussion of the issue.
4) If you still cannot find the solution, post:
a. the URL of a page showing the problem (either the actual page or a
dummy setup if the actual page isn't for public view)
b. describe the problem as you see it
c. describe what you're intending to happen that isn't happening
d. tell us in what specific browsers you are seeing the problem
5) Be patient and wait, this may be that hour we are not at the computer.
6) If, rather than a pat solution to your problem, you get an explanation
of why there's deeper problems that make this issue trivial, don't get mad
at us.
7) If we start arguing about the proper solution, pour your favorite
beverage, sit back and enjoy the show.
Feel free to edit if I've forgotten something in my
less-than-adequately-caffienated state...

Presumably you mean the background image right at the bottom of the
page? nav_bg.gif? Move the class from the <tr> to the <td> and don't
set the background in the HTML as well as the CSS.

However, that background image is just a white box with a black
interior that fills the entire width of the table cell. Why don't you
use CSS border intead? Less bandwidth and more flexible.

The you can concentrate on fixing the more important errors on the
page (such as no alt attributes, pixel font sizes, etc.)

That seems to cover the main points. You might also include a line or
two on what is on-topic in c.i.w.a.s, and what other related newsgroups
are available.

Now all you need to work out is how to get the offenders to read it ...

You could try posting it once a week or so, to see if it helps.
