Milo: Background shows live on net but not in design or preview mo


M

Milo in San Diego

I changed the background graphic on a webpage from one jpg to another. I
continue to see the old jpg background in both Design mode and Preview mode,
but I also get a message saying, "To view all elements in this page
correctly, save or publish the page and preview it in a browser".

Sure enough, live on Firefox and IE, it looks right, but it makes
programming tougher because the background affects where I want to put text
(not where a certain pattern would make it hard to read on the left, for
instance).

There must be a way to fix this, since I'm still seeing the old
graphic...which is referenced no place that I can find in the HTML!

The existing HTML statement is:

body background="wedding_back3.jpg"
lang=EN-US link=navy vlink=purple style='tab-interval:.5in' topmargin=10
leftmargin=25

Any help on this?

It's http://www.improventures.com/fun/rsvp/rsvp.htm

You'll see an olive, brown, orange and mostly tan background online.
But what I see in FP in both modes is the old background that I used
from another page that I copied. What you are seeing is called
wedding_back3.jpg and it's the right one. What I see in FP is called
something like "tan-speckled-background.jpg" and I don't get why FP
is holding that image somehow.

Try refreshing the page...push F5, maybe you're seeing a cached page.

Mixing in Word html into the website is, however, not a good idea.

I can try the f5 thing in the morning, but I'm not sure what you mean about
Word. I don't use MSWord to do anything with my website.

plan.

Holy cow...i'm seeing that on almost every page of my eight year old website.
Whenever I create a new page, I template another page in my site so this
thing permeates my site! Have no idea what I might have done with Word back
in 2000, but clearly I did something that I'm stuck with now.

Aren't there any few tweaks I can make to this code to get rid of this?
Thankfully, I'm not planning to change the background for my whole site, but
I'd sure like to be able to change the background on a specific page if I
wanted to.

I created a test page so I can work on this without messing up the one I
showed you: http://www.improventures.com/fun/birthday/birthday-test.html

Sure enough, the same thing happened where I remove the jpg and it still
shows in FP but not live. (Although I can't figure out why the background is
BLUE now when it says bgcolor=white)

I think the problem is coming from a Word Theme

<meta name=Template content="C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT
OFFICE\OFFICE\html.dot">
<meta name="Microsoft Theme 2.00" content="postmodern-milo-2 111">
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="b">

that is overiding your attempted changes. I "think" you need to remove it by
opening the page..or maybe the web..in Word, but I'm not sure as I've never
ever (ever) used Word for web pages.
