Topic: Background color not appearing in IE

My background color, white (#FFFFFF), for my simpleviewer seems to work fine in every search engine except for Internet Explorer.  In IE, everything loads and works properly, but the bg color for the view is black.  Anyone know of a solution to this problem?

Re: Background color not appearing in IE

does this have anything to do with my space.png fil missing?

Re: Background color not appearing in IE

Ok I think it might be a transparency issue but where in my code would i put the following:

<param name="wmode" value="transparent">



Here is my index.html for my simpleviewer:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
