at least i do not understand what you are trying to say. your webpage contains a background image, which is not displayed on some machines? – akira Jul 2 '10 at 5:40

just guessing from the mini bits of information you provide:

when you specify a filename on windows, it does not matter (essentially) if you mix upper and lower characters. on unix this matters.


your image is called "FoObAr.jPG"

on windows you can reference it in any variation of:

  • "foobar.jpg"
  • "foobar.JPG"

on unix there is only ONE valid form:

  • "FoObAr.jPG"

so, check the filename of your image and use EXACTLY that filename. furthermore, do not use \ in paths, use / (for example if you do something like src="..\images\foo.JPG" ... )
