I am using IE 5, and it looks fine, regardless of how I resize the page.  Have you played around with your PC and varied the video
resolution, color depth.  It might just be a video driver problem at your end.

Using Netscape 4.08 and resizing the page, the background does not disappear, but the text within the #main box does not resize when
I re-enlarge the browser (it remains a very narrow column of text).  This column goes back to its original width once the page is
reloaded.

You don't describe what you mean my "odd results."  In my case, the margins were not obeyed in IE 5.  With Netscape 4.08 the margins
are observed correctly, but I can see the background image through the space between each word.

I am using a 15" monitor at 800x600 resolution with a color pallette of 16 bits, Win95.
