Thnks all. It seems the multiple background image ability is not supported in any of these browsers. I would have loved to try this out the most. ByteDreams - Original Message - From: Philippe Wittenbergh [EMAIL PROTECTED] To: wsg@webstandardsgroup.org Sent: Thursday, February 17, 2005

Excellent analogy! As a person who supports assistive technology for our companies users, I would expand the process to include the makers of the OS that the browser runs on, not to mention hardware makers, video driver writers, the assistive technology developers, etc. All must cooperate.
