Hi,

I have a site that doesn't work properly in Opera. The site is compiled with tables and I have set up an external CSS-document which contain this string:

.background1
{
background-image: url(/img/bakgrunn_lang_kuttet.gif);
background-repeat: repeat-y
}

The HTML:
<td width="701" align="left" valign="top" class="background1">

Can anybody figure this out?

Thanks!

Welcome to Webmasterworld, xordian!

Opera doesn't handle background images in CSS at all. I'm afraid that I don't know a workaround for this. Maybe someone else (nick_w ;)) could chime in?

The code is working in Opera for me...

edit_g...I think it's just the pseudo classes (links 'n' things) that Opera wont handle the background image for with CSS

xordian...I can only suggest that you run both your CSS and HTML code through the validators are there could be an errant table tag (or unclosed? td tags) in your HTML which Opera is very fussy about...

validators here
[validator.w3.org...]

It works fine for me too, in both Opera 6.05 and 5.12.
Maybe you missed a semicolon at the and of the "background-repeat" line?

I downloaded the newest version of Opera (6) and the site looked all fine here. I will add an User-agent string to redirect the users in to a document which can redirect the user to download the latest version of Opera.
