my title gif file doesn't show up in IE... (4 posts)

    Hi, I started off using the Letterhead Theme and adjusted some things like column width and colors...i hated the letter spacing i was getting for the letter combination of my title, Rififi Nation, so i did a file in photoshop, saved as gif, and put it into the Letterhead folder in a folder called img...

    anyway, I deleted some of the original code and copied and pasted some code from the default WP Theme...replaced the kubrick jpg with the name of my art...here's what i put into the stylesheets section of Letterhead

    #header {
    background: #73a0c5 url('img/rififination.gif') no-repeat center;
    }

    #headerimg {
    margin: 7px 9px 0;
    height: 192px;
    width: 740px;
    }

    Here's what I put into the Header section...at the very end...

    <div id="header">
    <div id="headerimg">
    <h1>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>
    <div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>
    </div>
    </div>
    <hr />

    It works fine in Safari, Firefox, Netscape, and Opera...it only doesn't show up in IE 5.2, I'm running this version on a mac...

    is there anything i can do so it shows up in IE?...

    here's the blog address...it has a few dummy entries right now...maybe seeing all the source stuff would help?...

    http://www.rififination.com

    Perhaps you can tell I'm not someone who knows code very well, i copied and pasted what seemed like the right things into the right places, lord knows i might have done a few 'questionable' things...

    any help appreciated...thanks for your time...M

    You're saying it doesn't show up *only* in IE 5.2 on Mac?

    Then I believe it's this:

    #header {
    background: #73a0c5 url('img/rififination.gif') no-repeat center;
    }

    IE 5.2 on Mac doesn't read quotes the same way as other browsers. (I always have background issues with 5.2 on Mac because of this.)

    I *believe* you have to format it with double quotes. It won't read single quotes. (or it could be no quotes - but I'm pretty sure it's double quotes.) So change it to:

    #header {
    background: #73a0c5 url("img/rififination.gif") no-repeat center;
    }
