Whoops -- I missed that part. Have to admit that by using
FrontPage it has been over a year since I have had occasion to
actually TYPE a background command of any kind. (You just point
the old art pen and push) Therefore, I skipped over the code
without really looking at it.

Even on the busiest of days, one needs to slow down and really
read the posts to the list.

And--Yes--I was referring to colored backgrounds in individual
cells of a table as a means of creating a colored column on one
side or the other.

This works everywhere but old Netscape's and I watch my text and
overall background colors to be sure everything degrades OK.

Sorry for any confusion and best to all:
