I made an image i wanted to use for layout of my site, and Adobe Imageready sliced up my images. i added the XHTML transitional doctype, did NOT add the ?xml declaration. I made a nifty javascript to set the background of the table cells, as the background attribute is not xhtml standard :-D. HOWEVER, the XHTML doctype does not allow mozilla to use this script, and it does nto render those images. the site is http://www.aaron.kamioner.com/prob.html and the code is lsited here (please note this is a work in progress):

code:

and the css files are:
indexCSS.css:

code:
body{
background-color:#86d1cd;
margin:0px;
}
#containImage{

margin-top:10px;
margin-left:10px;
}
#oPSp{
margin-top:2px;
font-weight:bold;
font-family:Pristina;
}
#oDivNewsContent{
border-style:solid;border-color:black;border-width:1px;margin-top:13px;
}
.menuNav{
cursor:pointer;
}
#oPCredit{
font-size:8pt;
margin-top:6px;
}
a {
color:blue;
}
a:visited{
color:blue;
}
.pic:hover {
text-decoration:none;
}
table tr td p{
cursor:default;
}
#oDivNewsContent{
cursor:default;
}
table tr td div.menuNav sup{
color:red;
text-decoration:underline;
}
table tr td div.menuNav sup#msie{
color:blue;
border:solid black 1px;
text-decoration:none;
}
imgcell {display:inline;

margin-right:0;
margin-left:0;
}



the fonts.css file merely allows 3 downloadable fonts, but this is not important now.
the menuscript.js script file simply allows a kool rollover for the menu, and provides a navigation function for the "links."
the unselectable.js script file adds the unselectable attribute set to "on" for every tag.

Just an idea: try changing the doctype, unless it's completely crucial to the page. As long as it validates

So use CSS to specify the background-images....
