    The background attribute is not accepted at the Table level in IE 5 and it is only accepted at the Table level in Netscape 6+. What the heck is a workaround for this?

    That's what I thought

    Know of anywhere I can take a look at a complete CSS file? Everywere I have looked has bits and pieces which is good if I had time to do tutorials, but I am better at disecting existing files.

    CSS (with inline styles) to give a table a background image:

    Code:
    <table style="background-image: url(yourimage.gif);">
        <tr>
            <td>Blah Blah</td>
        </tr>
    </table>
    Or using an external stylesheet, you first should give the table in question an ID or class, then declare your styles in the CSS file using that name. First the html:

    Code:
    <table class="bgimage_table">
        <tr>
            <td>Blah Blah</td>
        </tr>
    </table>
    And then the CSS file:

    Code:
    .bgimage_table { background-image: url(yourimage.gif); }
    And thats it. There are several other css styles you can use for more control over the background image such as;
    background-repeat (use repeat, repeat-x, repeat-y, or no-repeat)
    background-color (define with a hex color ex: #ffffff)
    background-position (use a combination of "top" or "bottom" and "left" or "right" to define where the image is positioned)
    background-attachment (use fixed or scroll)

    CSS. I've only tested it on IE 6 and Firefox 0.8 though.

    <table style="background-color: red">

    or

    <table style="background-image: url(background-image.jpg)">
