    Hello all! I recently created a small site for a friend of mine and can not get the background image or the yellow dots in the menu to shoe in IE 7 or 8. Everything works great in any webkit browser and Firefox. I am stumped!! is the site in question.

    Code for background image:

    #main {
    background-image: url(images/main2.jpg);
    position: relative;
    width: 945px;
    height: 703px;
    top: 45px;

    code for dotted lines in menu:

    dt {

    background:url(images/dot.gif) bottom left repeat-x;

    If you will notice, the yellow dotted lines in the menu are actually small images. I used the same "background:url() for both.

    Can anyone shed any light on the issue? Many thanks in advance for any help! -Hugo


    Fixed the background issue. The dots will appear in IE 5.5 but not 6,7 or 8? Weird! I am using to test the site. Good tool! -Hugo


    I can see the dots in IE7 and 8 using VMWare running XP Home, in IETester I can see them too in 6,7 and 8. You should try using IETester you can download it at
    it doesn’t give you a browser shot, you can actually navigate the site.
