Hi
Building a site and im having problems with background image display in Firefox. for a simple explination i have a <div> on the page that carries a background image set to repeat vertically and cover 100% of the <div>.
Inside this holder <div> i have 2 smaller <div>'s that float left and right respctivley. I think that because they are set to float the background image appears in IE but not in Firefox or Netscape, what CSS can i add to either the holding <div> or the two inner <div>'s to make the background image appear in both?

Ive tried all i can think of

Thanks

It might not be Firefox that's causing the issue, it may well be that you've coded to make it work properly in IE6 which is not the right way to do it according to Firefox.
