Hi

 

I have come across and interesting problem with background images. Some
sites use a background (CSS) image for the main banner at the top and this
sometimes contains navigation items. When you select the High Contrast
option with Windows XP and Windows 7 it appears that background images are
not displayed with Internet Explorer or Firefox, but are displayed with
Opera. Love other opinions about how this stands accessibility-wise.
