    Hi Rob,

    Right, this one had me stumped for a bit until I relaised what they had done. You need to add two bits of code to the body tag <body ..... > of your page.

    The tag currently reads:

    <BODY topmargin="0">

    you need to insert both the reference to the bg image AND (this is this bit that confused me) the reference to the BG color. You need the color as the BG image is made up of nothing but transparent sapce with white dots. When you're done you body tag should look like this:

    <BODY topmargin="0" background="images/bg.gif" bgCOLOR="#1D529D">

    I hope that works for you.
