Background is not transparent (6 posts)

    Again, it works in FF but not IE (sigh).

    Here's the code:

    #insideWrapper {
    background: #994466 url('images/greenback.jpg') repeat left fixed;
    position: relative;
    top: 5px;
    width: 510px;
    margin: auto;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    border: 0px solid #666;
    background-color: #99FF66;
    text-align: justify;
    }

    .post {
    width: 425px;
    margin: auto;
    background: transparent;
    text-align: justify;
    }

    I did have background: #994466 url('images/greenback.jpg') repeat left fixed; in .post but IE hated it and now it just repeats the background in very long posts. Such as here:

    It looks quite bad.

    How can I fix this?

    Thank you in advance

    Have you already tried it with no-repeat instead of repeat? ;-)

    but if I used no-repeat then it would display a tiny image.

    Ah, sorry, I didn't check the actual background image. In this case repeat-x is probably what you need :-)

    i created a new bg image, and so it seems to work better overall i think looks fine in IE too - I'll keep repeat-x in mind next time. Thanks for your help
