Mike -
You have put the background color and image under background-image. Why
don't you consolidate all of your backround statements into one:
 #footer {
color: #d9d9d9;
background: #33 url(images/Footer_background_s1.jpg) repeat-x top;
min-height: 96px;
}
Otherwise, you need to separate background-image and background-color.

 Both the HTML and the CSS validate ok. 
 
 
 So does any one see what I have wrong for IE?

I agree, consolidate background-image, background-repeat and *-position into
one 'background' statement. Easier and saves a few bytes.

Mike,

This line is invalid:

background-image: #33 url(images/Footer_background_s1.jpg);

You're defining both the color *and* the url in the image property.

Either change it to:

background-image: url(images/Footer_background_s1.jpg);
background-color: #33;

or:

background: #33 url(images/Footer_background_s1.jpg);

This is invalid across all browsers, it's just that IE8 is the only one that
seems to actually care.

2010-11-30 Thread Mike Kear
YEP!  That did the trick.   I thought i'd checked all those things, but i
missed that one on the IE-Only style sheet. 

Thanks.   I knew having a fresh eye look at it would see something that i
was too close to to notice -  couldn't see the wood for the trees.
