    ...hence why I'm offering a lot of dollars. How can you correctly apply a background image to a table cell, or even a whole table? This does not work:
    Code:
    .navbar {background-image:url(../images/navbarbg.gif); background-repeat:repeat-x}
    It just doesn't render anything. Surrounding the URL with quotes doesn't help. It works fine in a good browser like Mozilla, but POS browsers like NS4 don't like it.

    Try doing it without CSS, like so:
    Code:
    <table background="../images/navgarbg.gif">
    </table>
    or like so:
    Code:
    <table>
      <tr>
        <td background="../images/navgarbg.gif"></td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    If you post the whole snippet and the image, I could do something more specific for you, but I'm sure you can figure it out on your own, too

    Incidentally, I think the problem you might be having with your CSS is the URL relativity... have you thought about using absolute URLs?
    Code:
    .navbar {
        background-image: url(http://www.webdesignforums.net/images/navbarbg.gif); 
        background-repeat: repeat-x;
    }

    Not using CSS is not an option.

    Will try background tomorrow. The path is not a problem because other browsers render it properly.

    I have to use CSS (not an option to not use it) . The site will automatically load the correct style sheet (server-side) depending on browser.

    Just a comment.

    Why even bother coding for Netscape anymore? Work on it has ceased as of about 1.5 months, it's dying out, explain to "whoever" that it's now a defunct browser.
