Forums / Fucking HTML driving me insane.

I can't figure this out for the life of me. I wan't a non-repeating picture-background for text to go over, and I want to also have the color black to match the said background. I used this.

STEVE IS A BIG FAT TOOL[/code]

The problem: It works fine in IE Explorer: The red paint strokes over a black background, and then theres my text. In Firefox, just a plain black background. I put quotes around the location, BUT NOW (MOTHERFUCKINGFUCK) Firefox puts it over a white background, which obviously looks like shit. Why is it doing this and how can I make it STOP? :|

Anywho...

It basically looks like this...

Now that you figured it out, I suggest you edit your post and take out that CSS, n00b.

I didn't figure it out. That's a picture of how it looks in IE. The second is a picture of how it looks in Firefox. According to my friend, it looks the same in both Firefox and IE.

I DIDN'T FIGURE THIS OUT. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING ON. I HATE HTML.

Sorry, I thought you meant you forgot to add the following code. (Apparently you meant forgot to add the correct/incorrect comparison.)

I guess your default bg color is black in IE and white in Firefox. So you need to specify the background color explicitly by tacking on "black" or "#000". Example:


background: url(http://www.windizzy.com/~steve/layout/background.gif) no-repeat #000;
[/code]

I have read and notice other people having this problem too, about it looking good on firefox but not IE. Even though I barely started to wet my feet on HTML, I will definitely take a note on this in the future when I start messing with HTML like this.

Bah. Well, domain exploded. That's about it...
