    repeat-x not showing up

    Hi,

    I'm having problems making an image repeat horizontally. Ironically, the CSS was working fine, but we've recently migrated from a windows server to a linux one and I'm wondering if that might be part of the problem.

    This is the CSS:

    Code:
            
    div.solidLine {
        background: url('http://niche-canada.org/files/images/dash.gif');
        background-repeat: repeat-x;
        height: 5px;
        overflow: hidden;
        margin: 1px 0;
    }
    I previously got this to show a solid line the width of whereever it was placed by inserting:

    Code:
    <div class="solidLine"></div>
    However now it shows absolutely nothing. I've double checked the URL and the image is located there. Anyone have any ideas what the problem might be?

    Thanks

    Try taking the apostrophes out of the url:
    Code:
    background: url(http://niche-canada.org/files/images/dash.gif);

    Thanks for the reply. I've tried removing the apostrophes, but it still isn't showing up. I've also tried using a relative path and even changing it to an image hosted on a different website entirely.

    Tried adding 100&#37;, but still no luck.

    Incidentally, if I remove the "background-repeat: repeat-x;" the image still doesn't appear, so it seems to be an issue at the first line.

    Try inserting the image into an HTML page, just to see if it appears (outside of the CSS).

    The image appears fine if I use it directly in an "img" tag.

    It appears for me, using your code. Try validating your CSS, to see if there could be a parsing error. http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
