Mike,

This line is invalid:

        background-image: #333333 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: #333333;

or:

        background: #333333 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.

Subject: [WSG] Need a fresh eye - can anyone see what's wrong please?

I have a draft layout for a client that is fine in all respects except that
in IE8,  the background image in the footer is missing. 

Here's the page concerned:
http://afpwebworks.com/strikingdistance/index.cfm

And the footer div rule is as follows for IE (I have a IE-only style sheet)
: 

#footer {
        color: #d9d9d9;
        background-image: #333333 url("images/Footer_background_s1.jpg");
        background-repeat: repeat-x;
        background-position: top;
        min-height: 96px;
}

Both the HTML and the CSS validate ok. 


So does any one see what I have wrong for IE?

Cheers
