I’m just learning CSS and I’ve been developing a site for my friend. I have it in a test environment in a subdomain on another friend’s website. I’m a Mac user and everything seemed hunky-dory until I went to show it to my friend in IE6 on her PC. Wow. Talk about embarrassed. The repeating background which had been so lovely on my Mac was completely absent, as was the background image of her masthead. Now I could fix this if I were to throw the CSS out the window, but I’m trying hard to do this right. So far as I can tell, everything validated OK.
Can anyone shed some light on the situation? The page background is simply that red image I’m using as an image holder. The masthead background is a black-to-gray gradient.
Please don’t be too hard on me!! I’m teaching myself.
