    I would like to add a background image to my website at I also want the areas with content to have a slightly transparent background image: a png that is 90% white. This way, the background image only shows through in the content areas a little without making the text difficult to read.

    The background image isn’t the problem–it works just fine. However, I can’t figure out where to add the transparent png to the content areas. I’ve tried adding it to .top, .main, and .footer, as well as to .wrapper, in both stylesheet.css and style1.css. I can’t seem to get the transparent png to show. The code I am using is: {background-image: url(../images/skin1/contentbg.png) repeat;}. I have checked in IE8 and Firefox and neither browser shows the png.

    Any ideas about where to add the png and what the code should look like?

    Feel free to check my site as listed above although I have removed the body background image for the moment since it is just too intrusive in the content areas.

    Thanks for your help,




    I’m a little lost with what you’re trying to do – can you post a screenshot of the problem area?
