    site not working in Win IE7, but works in Mac and other Win browsers

    Hello, I am working on a site, not yet complete, but the white background should appear over the background of the lavender fields. It does for all browsers except Windows IE7, yet the template from which I created this site works fine in Windows IE. When I changed something in the css, I messed up the layout for the white background image. Can somebody help me? I don't have a Windows machine but my client for whom the site is being made, uses Windows Firefox and IE 7, and said it looks find in Firefox, but not IE7.

    Not working: http://www.goddessspring.com/ie7.html based on the working in IE7 site below...

    Working: http://www.gordonmac.com/downloads/html/demos/Peace/

    Should look like the image here: http://goddessspring.com/web_draft.jpg

    Thanks for any help with my css.

    It looks like a hasLayout issue. Try adding:

    Code:
    #wrapper-3 {
    background:url("images/bg_wrapper-3.jpg") repeat-y scroll 0 0 transparent;
    color:#333333;
    text-align:left;
    height:1%;
    }
    The height 1% will set the hasLayout property in IE7 (and below), which sorts out the issue.

    Thank you so kindly for your prompt reply. I didn't know about the hasLayout property and I appreciate your fixing this for me. Hooray.

    I also found this web tool, that now allows me to view the site in different browsers that I don't have on my computers:

    Cheers, very pleased. Mamaglee
