I've been active on webmaster world for a while but I'm new to CSS. So far I have studied the crash course information here as well as some other online information. I also bought Cascading Style Sheets 2.0 by Meyer.
I still can't figure out why this only works in the title section of my HTML page but not on a separate css sheet. The sheet and HTML page are in the same directory and it doesn't seem to matter if I give the full URL or not. I've about given up but hoped someone here could tell what I've doing wrong.
in the head of an HTML page it works fine but if I put it on a CSS sheet it doesn't work at all. This is true no matter what version of Netscape or IE I've tried.
Meanwhile everything else I have on the separate stylesheet works fine. I haven't tried to replace tables but font size, font and background color etc works great.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Once you helped me realize that everything was correct with my background image code I looked at my style sheet. When I copied it over to the style sheet from the HTML page I copied the < style > tags with it. Apparently I don't need them on the style sheet and once I got rid of them the background worked fine. I would have figured it out earlier but everything else was working so I focused on the background image.
Thanks again. I fill so silly that it was such a stupid mistake.
