    Stretching an image vertically.

    Here is the site in question.

    www.baelfire.net/Main/index.php

    I'm using a blog script called B2 in order to do a news posting thing, but that's working fine and nicely. What I'm trying to do is dress it up a bit. I have a border around it, and in the border is a gradient, which is supposed to stretch the length of the border. The top gradients stretch the desired lengths, but the side borders do not. They look fine when I look at the local copy, and there is no PHP acting on it, so I was just wondering why it changes when it's uploaded to my server.

    I'm writing the site in XHTML transitional (i've attached the stylesheet) and I'm using IE 6 and XP at 1200 x 1024.

    Here's what it looks like to me:

    Here's what I want it to look like:

    http://www.baelfire.net/Main/Images/temp2.jpg

    What I can't seem to do is get those gradient images to stretch 100%, as they're told to do. Also, something completely different happens in Netscape 7.1, where they stretch but not all the way.

    I got a friend who has mozilla firebird to take a look at it, and it looks exactly how I want it. So I guess the question is... what's IE 6 doing to it?

    Using Win Me and IE 5.5 your site just looks like you want it to.

    Yeah, that's what I've heard. I'm really hoping there's a way to get this to work in IE6...

    Hello Kazbaeden,

    It's looking fine in IE 6.0, Windows 2000 Professional as well.
