    Newbie question - weird Mac problem?

    I'll try to make this explanation simple - it's a bit of a puzzle.
    A client of mine asked me to make the bg image on a site 'a little bit darker', so I did 4 versions. I made 3 copies of the original style in the stylesheet:

    default - .maindiv - bg.gif
    default2 - .maindiv2 - bg2.gif
    default3 - .maindiv3 - bg3.gif
    default4 - .maindiv4 - bg4.gif

    It worked fine at home (on a pc) with IE, Firefox and Netscape. Then I go to my client who uses a Mac and default looks fine, but 2-4 have completely BLANK backgrounds!

    I thought about it for hours last night, but it makes no logical sense to me. Do any of you have an idea of what might be going on?

    FYI - here are the urls:
    http://www.mediability.bc.ca/riley/p...s/default.html
    http://www.mediability.bc.ca/riley/p.../default2.html
    http://www.mediability.bc.ca/riley/p.../default3.html
    http://www.mediability.bc.ca/riley/p.../default4.html

    Thanks in advance to whoever can figure this one out!

    I will have to look at it on my MAC when I get home. But off the top of my head-- It could be some preference your client has enabled on Safari/FF/Opera

    I was thinking that using an inline style for that property might slove the problem. Does that sound reasonable?

    Sorry, but that has nothing to do with it and won't do a thing.

    On any Mac from the last few years you would likely use Safari (or FireFox or Opera or Camino or...there is not just one generic Mac browser that somehow has problems unlike Windows), which is the default browser.

    The backgrounds appears (all of them) in Safari, on any modern Mac.

    The user with "trouble" viewing the background may be using IE for Mac - they should not - it is not supported by M$ or Apple in any way - it is a dead browser that should not be catered to.
