I've tried all of the suggestions here. I searched an studied the HTML and
CSS tutorials and examples.

This is my latest. No errors detected.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
      "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<link rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="New1.css" />
</head>
</html>

All I get is a line of color acroos the top of the page.

Here is my New1.css . . .


  font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
  font-style: normal;
  font-weight:normal;
  text-decoration: none;
  color: Black;
  background-color: Black;
  background-image: url(D:/RealEstate/XSite/TestSplash.jpg);
background-repeat: repeat-y;
  background-attachment: scroll;
  background-position: center;

What am I doin wrong?

Thanks . . .  RickinRSM
