Used bgproperties="fixed" but it's tiled in netscape and my text shifts to the left. I used tables. Can someone tell me how to make a fixed bg that will work for both netscape and ie. And a possible reason for shifting in netscape. Pointing to a tut would be wonderful, also.
Simple, straight answer : you can't.
bgproperties is not supported by Netscape.
As for the text shifting, if you wouldn't mind posting a URL we'll all have a look at it and try to help you out :) Usually it's because of a closing HTML tag gone AWOL...
an example is @
There is no fixed background, but the text shifts when viewed in netscape. I do realize now that I should have placed the in my empty tables..tried that and it still shifted. This is my daughters site.
Not sure I follow you. I used the div tag. But did not use z-index of "0". I have a bouncing bg script but haven't found a static one that is compatable with both browsers. Can you give me a short example of what you mean with the div z-index "0" Thanks
God bless the American Education system...Please!
Sorry about that, I was thinking of a non-repeat positioned bg.
I just reread your post, very slowly this time, and I see what you're after. The best that you can do, as far as I can tell, is to set the image up in a div z-index to 0 and write a script to re-position the image on scrolls a la Geocities. It's cheezy sure, but throw a link to http://www.webstandards.org and all that eye strain from jumping images might do some good.
Wish I could have helped more.
One last thought,leave in the bgproperties tag and only allow the js re-position to happen in NN.
Aepic : FYI, it's possible to prevent tiling of backgrounds using the CSS attribute : background-repeat:none.
As for the shifting text... Here's the offending code :
You can't ensconce a TD inside another TD. You'd need to create a new table inside that TD for it to work properly.
<td width="378" height="119"><td width="178" height="119"><img src="carlalogo.gif" width="218" height="178" alt="" border="0"></td>
Hope this helps.
Thanks BC..I'll fix that. I tried the background as you stated and used :no-repeat and it did not work. I'll try it that way and let you know if it works.
Look @ http://www.ferrinnkelsey.com/ with netscape. The intro page has a fixed bg of baloons, does not show @ all in netscape.
Thanks a lot
