Netscape BG Image Problem

Can't get the background images to work in Netscape tables? by MikeBarone

If you call background images into a table in Netscape it works alright. But as soon as you start tinkering with the table in any way the images start getting whacked out and it does not look good at all. But it all looks great in IE.

Unfortunately there is not way to get this to work in Netscape.

I actually had to create multiple sets of pages for my site because of the very same problem.

I used JavaScript that will make it easy for you to redirect pages (more on that at the end of post).

To see the code look at the page made for Netscape and the one made for IE (you must use the browser to view the pages or they will redirect to the appropriate pages).

Page made for IE:

Page made for Netscape:

What you will notice on the Netscape page is that I basically made snap-shots of the IE pages and blocked the images in place. One thing to keep in mind is that 85% of the users on the Internet (general population) use Internet Explorer. I used that information when I made the Netscape pages. They take longer to load but at least they work.

By the way, view the source of the pages to 'steal' the redirect code if you want to use it. If you have trouble just submit another post.

Hope this helps.
