Question: Are image backgrounds in table cells possible in more than once place? I have tried placing the above ‘background=’ line in the <TABLE>…<TR>…<TD>…and have found that for the image to be visible in IE, it can only be in the TABLE line and not the others. NSCP is less picky as it is visible in all–TABLE, TR, TD. Is my theory the truth or is there any other secrets that I am not aware of?

Question: I just found out that because my screen resolution was set to 1024×768 when I designed my sites, most people are not seeing what I designed, but instead something extremely large and very badly laid out. I have now set my screen at 600×800, do I have to go back and re-do all of my pages to make them look decent at this resolution?
