Works OK for me - today's trunk, CVS build. What build / platform / etc. are you
having problems on?
Works for me as well with a release build from this morning on WINNT.

Closing as WORKSFORME.

Michael, if you are still seeing this problem, please reopen and report the
details: OS, version, build date - maybe throw in a screen shot so we know
exactly what you are seeing. Thanks.

What we have here is that the actual content changes from day to day. The page
behavior is different today trhan yesterday. A failure browsing today is not
noticable but there are some differences between IE. Mozilla, MFCEmbed.
I will attach screen shots for review. Please determine if possible the layout
differences (bug in display?)

The differences between rendering might relate to font size interpetation
differences.

Michael, if the alleged problem with the broken background image is no longer
visible then this bug shoudl be closed. If you see other problems please open
another bug to report them, and please give the build number or date and the OS
you are on.

Also, your attachement has no images so I cannot compare them ;) However,
comparing IE6 and Mozilla (10-03 trunk) the pages look the same.

When I open the attachment the images are there so I will try again. And I did
not say that there was absolutely no problem only that the changing content made
for different behavior. So I will try to attach the images again.

When I view the page in todays build I see different behavior from IE. In IE the
grap0hic repeats. In MFCEmbed the graphic truncates. Do you not see this. The
number of text sections encompassed by the graphic does differ across the versions.

Michael, the original attachement will only work for you - look at this image
reference:

<img src="file:///D:/work/bug102977MFCE.jpg" alt="Screenshot MFCEmbed"
width="758" height="961">

A file link to your hard dirve - that will not work for anyone but you. But,
thanks for attaching the individual images anyway :) Without them I would have
not known what you were complaining about because you did not describe it.

--> 

The problem with the missing text is simple - IE supports illegal CSS: the rule

  .headertext{COLOR: #FFFFe7; FONT:Arial; size:12pt; 
              background:666699; text-decoration:none;}

is invalid because the background value is not preceeded by a '#' so the text is
there, but it blends with the background color. Putting a '#' in front of the
color fixes this page (see the testcase I am about to attach). This is totally
invalid CSS and we will not support this - css is very specific about how
illegal values are to be handled and it says to throw them away, which is what
we are doing.

-->

With IE 6 the background image does not repeat. I guess you are using IE5?
Anyway, the markup shows that background image being on a table:

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" 
 background="http://communities.msn.com/content/features/images/key_bgrd.gif">

If you put a border on that table you will see that it is only as big as the
key-graphic. I'm not sure why it is repeating for you. Maybe your suggestion
about the font sizing is the key - if the text is larger in your IE then the
image may have to repeat to fill the entire table.

-->

I cannot duplicate the problem you are seeing in MFCEmbed. Works fine for me
using today's build - the graphic is not cut off. However, your font in your
mfcEmbed shot is so small, the table that contains the key graphic is small
enough that the grahic is cut off. This is what I would expect - shrink the font
in IE and you will see the same thing.

Closing bug again.  The CSS problem is WONTFIX, and the issues with the
repeating or truncated key graphic are simply due to the font size you are using
and would occur in IE too if you changed the default font size.
