>>>Okay, I received a great suggestion for something I'm trying to do. However, after much research and a lot of frustration, I can't seem to get it to work. I want to use an image as a background for a table. I am using a black left side bar. There is a 2 column table(borders are not visible)that helps me keep things in line. My navigation menu runs down the left side bar. The rest of my page is in the 2nd column of the table. This is where I would like to place a graphic as a background. I have tried the following command with the understanding that it is only supported by IE 3.0+ <TD BACKGROUND="../ScannedPhotos/palm.gif"> This did not work. I tried <TABLE BACKGROUND="/..ScannedPhotos/palm.gif"> That didn't work either. Any help or link to resources about this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
>>I made a sample page and it looks ok in NS4. Check it out here:
>So far, it's not showing up for me. However, I'm using NS3.0 right now. Do you think it will show up in AOL since they use Internet Explorer in AOL 4.0? Thanks for all of your help! Lisa

I just checked it on Net Mechanic and NS3 is the only browser it doesn't work on. AOL was ok.
