[SOLVED] Doctype and div bgcolors


Recommended Posts

Hi simple question.

I'm setting a background color on a div and when I put the


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">


the background color disappears? Whys this?

Your problem was here:


  background-color: f9dc6e;


Should be:


  background-color: #f9dc6e;


The doctype just meant that the browser started checking it by rules, and you were breaking the rules by not having the pound sign (#) in front of the hexidecimal code, so it stopped displaying it.
