    container background disappearing

    Can anyone tell me why the background of the parent container (class=outer) disappears when the second child-container (class=inner) is introduced?
    Thanks in advance

    More information needed

    Hello,

    I was looking through your coding and first thing is you are using some code that is depricated(<center> tag for example). Could you be a little more descriptive as what your goal is with this code?


    Thanks
    Alan
