Does anyone know if there is a fix to make netscape display css background images? (apart from user agent detection)

Do you mean for <body>? It works for me in NN4, NN6 and Mozilla.

body {margin:0px 0px; padding:0px; color: #000; font-family:Arial; background: white url(/images/mybg.gif) 100px 0px no-repeat;}

I must say that the position does not work. It will put itself in the top left corner.

Yeah- sorry- I should have clarified. It works when the position is set to relative but not to absolute.

We're starting to question if this is worth it for 2.5% of our user base... Might be easier just to do one for them with tables and use user agent id'ing.

I think you're on the right track edit_g, Netscape4 is not a css browser in any meaningful sense of the term. I wouldn't waste too much time on it; I think it is sufficient just to present readable data in it.

edit_g, I guess I should have clarified, the position doesn't work on NN4. Anything higher which AOL users are using or are going to use (NN6+ or Mozilla+) works correctly.

Netscape Gecko is the...open source embeddable browser designed to support open Internet standards such as HTML 4.0, CSS 1/2, the W3C Document Object Model, XML 1.0, RDF and JavaScript. Netscape Gecko forms the platform for Netscape 6 and 7, CompuServe7, AOL for Mac OS X and the Mozilla browser (among others).

AOL 8 Browser information [webmaster.info.aol.com]

The page above offers added browser information on AOL 8's support of:

Document Object Model
DIV attributes
Non-Standard Elements
Style Sheets, including dynamically changed styles

To my view, the standards support is definitely a step forward.

Hey, Tedster -

That links sounds great, but it doesn't seem to work. Could you check and see if it's correct? Thanks!

It worked when I wrote the post. Temporary AOL troubles, I guess. The page is accessed from the "webmaster" link at the very bottom of AOL's public index page.
