Correct. This depends on the version number, platform, and design of the Web browser you're using. Earlier versions of Netscape do not support all the features of the newest one, and other browsers (OmniWeb, Mosaic, et c.) may not support them at all. Redundancy and standards are your friends. Try specifying a color as well as a background image (<td bgcolor="whatever" background="images/ugly.gif">). Also, try out your pages on every version of browser you can find for your platform, and try it out on as many other computers as possible. Never depend on browser-specific features for legibility. _____________________________________________________________________________ Christopher Reid Palmer : :
