Background image problems

Background image problems

(OP)
I place a background image in Netscape 7 in mac os 10.3 and netscape overrides the "url is relative to page location" button. Instead netscape enters the complete string that relates to my computer, my hard drive, and the folders therein. I just want my body background to read: <body background="parchment2"
but it won't stay that way.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I wasn't having this problem up until about a month ago.

RE: Background image problems

Thanks, got the same problem. No matter how I edited the HTML, composer would overwrite the source when I saved the file. So after some searching about, I just hand edited the file in Notepad to remove "style" and use the following format for Background. I also turned off, the preference for reformating during a save in Composer.

<body " background="filename.jpg"
 bgcolor="#8b5a2b"
 link="#000099"
 alink="#000099"
 text="#000000"  
 vlink="#990099">
Other web users suggested going back to an earlier version of Composer (4.6, etc.) Which I have not done yet..

RE: Background image problems

I agree
Just click on the tab and hand code it in straight html.

I'll bet this "bug" does not stay in it long
as the Netscape GEKO people are good at that.
