    div background image scrolling when it shouldn't

    Hi everyone!

    I'm new to this forum and a pretty new web designer. I have an issue that I can't seem to resolve. go to in FF and IE6/7. See the difference? FF the text scrolls in front of the div's background image, however in IE the image scrolls up the div and disapears. My intent is for the image to behave like it does in FF. Anyone know what I'm missing to keep that image in place in IE?

    Here's my code (extraneous text removed to save some space)

    I found that your scrolling div just had a black background, no image, so I added my own background-image.

    This explains the general situation:-

    Even so, I couldn't get IE7 to fix the background-image. background-attachment: fixed just made the image disappear because it was then related to the whole screen, not to div, as explained in the link above.

    The only way I could get IE7 to fix the background-image was to repeat the image and also fix it with this code:-

    <div class="style1" id="text" style="width: 436px;
    height: 357px; overflow: auto; padding-left: 10px; padding-right:
    4px; background-image: url(images/txt_bkgrnd.jpg);
    background-repeat: repeat; background-attachment:
    <!--was background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position:
    top, left; background-attachment: scroll;-->

    Since I used my own image and it repeated but stayed fixed I'm not sure if it works with your image as I couldn't download txt_bkgrnd.jpg.

    Also the background-position: top, left; should be background-position: top left; without the , but this wasn't the problem as top left is the default so the error didn't matter.
    Code downloaded to my PC will be deleted in due course.
    WIN7; IE9, Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari for Windows; screen resolution usually 1366*768.
    Also IE6 on W98 with 800*600 and IE8 on Vista 1440*900.
