1 pixel is all it took to make the rain fall. Long and hard it fell today as I searched for the answer to my question, ‘Why does my back ground shift to the left in either Firefox or IE?’ I could fix the problem in one, the other would then come undone.
It seems that all browsers handle centering background images differently. Another Hunter raised the question and then found the answer to the problem at freewaytalk.
What a difference a shave makes!
