    that is because you have set the background color, and then overwritten it by using the background shorthand….

    either move the background-color call after the background shorthand, or add it TO the shorthand…

    Code:
    body {

    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    text-align: center; /* this centers the container in IE 5* browsers. The text is then set to the left aligned default in the #container selector */
    background: url(image/marble.jpg) no-repeat;
    background-position: center 32px;
    background-color: #f4efe3;
    }

    OR—-

    body {

    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    text-align: center; /* this centers the container in IE 5* browsers. The text is then set to the left aligned default in the #container selector */
    background: url(image/marble.jpg) #f4efe3 no-repeat;
    background-position: center 32px;
    }

    the browser interprets your current code like this…

    Code:
    background: url(“image/marble.jpg”) no-repeat scroll center 32px transparent;

    notice the transparent…. (because you didn’t specify, that is the default…)
