I seem to be in a bind if anyone can help. I have a page that uses alot off css, which requiers this <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"> in order to have it format correctly. the problem is with that i cannot add a background image to an <input type=text field>. if i remove the <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"> type all tables loose the properformat including all tbody and td, tr which even if i re-write the css for it still will not format properly. is there any kind of work around to get a text input filed background to work?
