inside my <head> tag.
Among other things, the css file specifies a background color for the body of the document:
It works just fine in Opera 6, in IE5.5, and in Netscape6.2 on my pc. But when the client ran it on their pc, there was no background color. I know they're using IE, but I'm not sure what version. This seems like such a basic thing. Is it possible some versions of IE don't support css?
It is quiet possible though that the client has selected fonts, colors for links, background -- many people like larger font size so they can read easily.
There must be a minor problem with some browsers.
Netscape 4 did not support two of the involved properties (background-attachment and background-position) so they couldn't support the shorthand rule.

Also, most of the shorthand CSS rules seem to me to have more quirks in their browser support than the "basic" forms, so switching over to background-color:#f7bc5b; sounds like a good suggestion.
