    Looks right in FF, not in IE or Opera

    What am I missing here?

    Any suggestions how to get this to work in Opera and IE.

    Thanks,

    Um... What's the problem?

    If it's supposed to be a black box on a green background it works great in IE 5.5!!

    Thats the problem. It's not suppose to be.

    Check it out in Mozilla/FF.

    I think you'd be better off just explaining the problems along with what you're trying to do. Most people are pretty lazy and making them click all over the place viewing source etc. is a lot of work! :P

    View the site in FF and then in IE or Opera -- the problem will be obvious.

    Hey buddy,

    Ya just need to order your background property properly, its real simple

    your example:
    HTML Code:
     div#uppercorners
       {
           margin-top:25px;
           margin-left:auto;
           margin-right:auto;
           width:699px;
           background: url(images/topcorners.gif)transparent top left no-repeat;
           height:14px;
       }
    the correct example:
    HTML Code:
      div#uppercorners
       {
           margin-top:25px;
           margin-left:auto;
           margin-right:auto;
           width:699px;
           background: transparent  url(images/topcorners.gif)no-repeat top left; 
           height:14px;
       }
    The correct order should read:

    background: background-color background-image background-repeat background-position

    the reasoning behind that is because the style sheet is telling it to read a background colour immediatly while the image is trying to load if its large

    Hope that helps

    Thanx, That did the trick. I figured it was something simple.

    The simple things are always the hardest to figure out.
