Can someone please shed some light on how backgrounds were to be
implemented?  I am looking at how MSIE is doing it and saying "ARG!! 
It can't be!" :)

MSIE doesn't even work if you put a background on a DIV...

If you put a background (ie a color) on a H? tag MSIE only places the
background directly under the text.  I beleive this is incorrect and
should be placed from one margin to the other.  If a background is
wanted on just the text then the SPAN tag should be used inside the H?
tag ...  Does anyone feel the same, or different?
