    ie6 displays wrong background image

    This page, displays fine in ie7, safari and firefox. http://www.ssat-inet.net/templates/main/index.html

    However, in ie6 the footer, for some bizarre reason, decides to use the background image from the header (sometimes it only appears after a mouse hover or a window resize).

    Any ideas why?

    CSS is at http://www.ssat-inet.net/templates/m...tem/system.css
    *edit* link has now been corrected
    lines 384-390 and 930 onwards are the bits to look at.

    Thanks for any help

    personally i cannot see why it may be doing it...very strange indeed. On another note i notice that you are using Immediacy....What is their CMS system like? We are thinking of getting it for my company websites and would like to know what its like.

    immediacy

    Immediacy's pretty Ok. the user interface I think is fairly intuitive, which is what you want if non-technical people will be uploading content.

    The big downside is that it has no document management capability - it just shoves everything in one big folder, where you can't rename or delete or move anything.

    A couple of other points are that it's presented (or at least it was to us) as open source, so you'd expect to be able to dive in and tweak everything. It's important to realise though that if they sell you plug-ins for extra functionality these aren't necessarily open source.

    And finally, make sure you go with a good immediacy partner. The one we went with weren't great, and that's soured my experience of using immediacy.

    Also,even though it purports to generate accessible code, I've run pages through its accessibliity checker and they've passed, and then failed W3C on a number of points.

    Hmmm...interesting to know that...i thought they had a document managment capability?? They are about to release a new version of it (today i think) which we will get a demo of next week...so your maitenance plan should cover the update for the new system.

    Thanks for the info

    Not fixed

    I probably should have mentioned that the background image sometimes only appears after a mouse hover or a page resize.

    HI,

    Sounds like classic "haslayout" behaviour (see faq). The first thing to try would be this:

    Code:
    * html #footerLeft ,* html #footerRight {height:1%}
