IE 4 and 5 are long passed, and don't display many pages as it should. Get IE 6 from MSFT, should fix your prob.
I'm an admitted "novice" attempting to learn HTML to create my first Web Page from instruction course. My system is Windows 98 SE on a Gateway 2000 computer; my Web Brower is Microsoft Internet Explorer. Here's my challange I have all of the HTML "tags" that leads to a fully functional Web Page!
I successfully follow chapter 2 instructions to change background colors by <BODY BGCOLOR="#CCFFCC'> (e.g. CCFFCC is computerese for light green, i'm told); UNTIL we are to specify a background image as follows:
<BODY BACKGROUND="swirlies.gif"> And instead of the blue swirlies background image appearing the Web Page (after selecting "save" and hitting the "refresh" button on the browser) -- the Web Page retuns a plain white background - the CCFFCC color light green is also taken away?? QUESTION: "What do I need to do to get my system's ".GIF" Graphic File to respond? I feel that because I'm a novice I must be doing something in error. I've tried over and over with the same results -- the GIF Graphic File will not respond! Can someone take pity and help me to resolve this problem - I don't know where else to turn because other Forums speak a "technical" language that is way over my head and they don't seem to be able to relate to a novice such as myself- Thank you!
