Background Picture problem

Postby zac on Tue Jun 18, 2013 11:25 pm


I use NVU, I used it to create an ebay listing everything seemed fine but the picture I use for the background doesn't appear. anyone have any ideas.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
style="background-image: url(;">
style="width: 500px; text-align: left; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"
border="1" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">
<td style="text-align: center;">This
is a test.</td>

when I paste this into ebay I lose most of the html

Your ebay display page is already a complete page with <html>, <head>, and <body> tags so it would strip out those elements. Since your background image is in the <body> tag you loose it as well. If the background image is the same size as the table set the background image in the table tag. If the background image is larger than the table set it in a <div> that surrounds the table. When pasting your pages into the ebay UI you only need the code between the <body> and </body> tags.
