Background Madness
Maybe this can lead to security issues?

I'm using CSS for a long time now, but within the last months I encounter a very special development from time to time. Some Browser seem to loose their Default Stylesheet for the Body Background. I had Situations with Safari and Opera: if there was no body background defined, the page was not displayed and/or displayed over the previous page. The Browser just forget to create a new Document with the Standard Background after all.

Anyone encountering similar stuff recently? I guess this can lead to some real Madness within the rendering part of Browser which might be able to Remote Attack.

Not seen or heard of that Hakre, it certainly sounds a bit odd

Opera has had some issues with backgrounds when printing them or using background attachments but doesn't seem like it would be related.

maybe next time you come across a page, or if you've an example you'd like to stickymail it so we can take a look see
