      Here's an example from W3C's page on CSS backgrounds
      [http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/colors.html#background-properties%5d:

      body { background-image: url("marble.png") }

      Now, there are other examples in there where double-quotes are not used.
      I don't know off-hand how well UA's support backgrounds where
      double-quotes aren't used, so I don't know right now whether that's the
      problem. I'm still thinking it may be a bad reference. In other words,
      does the image you are referencing actually exist where you are saying it
      is, and under the name you are giving?

      If we had a URL to look at for this example, it would be much easier to
      tell. Just having the code snippet doesn't tell us whether the image
      exists or not.

        Hi all...

        I have a client who is on AOL and is telling me there are errors
        on one of her site's pages. I cannot see these errors in the
        GoLive preview nor IE, and started wondering if it's an
        AOL-specific issue.

        I know there's a browser emulator out there that can show how
        pages look in various recent browsers, including AOL. Anyone
        remember where that is? I've been all over Google to no avail.

        Thanks!

          background-image: url(image.gif);

          I test my pages on Windows and Mac OS X. And I've pretty much tested
          in all the major browsers; IE, Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera,
          Safari, etc. and I've never gone wrong without quotes.

              Then it has to be something like the path and/or filename that are being
              used do/es not exist on the server. Like I suggested earlier, perhaps the
              image is on a linux server and the file name there is .JPG instead of
              .jpg, or the path is wrong somehow. Without an actual URL, we can't test
              anything and can only speculate.

                Actually, I don't know of any emulator for the AOL browser. As far as I
                know, the embedded AOL 9.0 browser is still based on IE5. Running IE5 and
                IE6 on the same computer can be a pain... I think it requires using some
                third party cracking tools to make it happen. Web TV's browser is IE5
                based as well.... but I don't know if using the WebTV emulator would show
                you the same problems.

                  Well the page looks better and I've fixed some of the code.
                  Thanks everyone for your assistance.

                  Still am unable to get the image to show up - double quotes, no
                  quotes or not. I have changed the photo, too. So I know I'm
                  doing something wrong.

                  And I still have been unable to figure out the settings so that
                  the right side bar really is on the right and not the bottom of
                  the page.

                  Any other thoughts?

                    In your CSS file, your url to the image is faulty.

                    The image is at:
                    http://web19.thehostingnet.com/~elevatin/images/EYBWCTile040822.jpg

                    And your CSS file is at:
                    http://web19.thehostingnet.com/~elevatin/docs/site.css

                    So, the correct CSS for the background-image would be:
                    background-image: url('./images/EYBWCTile040822.jpg')

                    instead of where you have:
                    background-image:url('images/EYBWCTile040822.jpg')


                    As for the right-column appearing below where it should, it appears that
                    something in the left-column is forcing it to be too wide for the
                    right-column to appear where it should, but there is a lot of nesting and
                    such to go through, so I don't have an answer on that just yet.

                      They require your two table colums in the left content area to be at
                      least 576 pixels wide to accommodate these images alone. I think this
                      may be just too big bearing in mind a visitor with 800 x 600 resolution
                      only has about 760 pixels of width to play with.

                      Maybe try resizing these and see how you get on?
