The background images demo has been updated to work with IE5/Mac and a fix was added for IE5.0.
IE5/Mac wasn’t showing the background images because I was using single quotes to encapsulate the URL strings in the bgImages stylesheet. Changing to double-quotes got IE5/Mac working like a charm.
IE5.0 wasn’t displayin the background image of the center column. In actuality, it was. The problem was that the
#contentColumn block had a background color set in the v4 stylesheet. Setting this to transparent in the bgImages stylesheet fixed the problem and IE5.0/Win works like a charm.
As an aside, the misc. demos available on the skidoo layout site (with the exception of the headings demo) do not work under NN4 (and probably IE4). I will probably take a closer look at this sometime this week.
