"when the background loads there are no green, wavy lines; but when the lines load, the background disappears.)"

The way that I set up the background is that I set the background to blue. Then I later set the background image to green waves on a transparent background. I did it that way so that if loading the image failed then you would get a plain blue background.

What IE6 seems to be doing is setting the background color to blue, displaying the text, and then instead of loading the background image it sets the background to white which makes the text disappear.

I went to the library and tried the web site on Windows 2000. Windows 2000 displayed everything OK except that the background is gray with black waves.

I will have to go to the library and get a book on IE web design. Maybe that way I can find out which subset of XML actually works on Microsoft.

" I will download LifeBoat for my personal use."

I did not test LifeBoat on Debian because I don't have a Debian distribution handy. I expect that LifeBoat will just barely work on Debian. If you are willing to do about 4 hours work you could use the generic distro code to create Debian distro code which works well. If you do so then please send the result to me and I will include it in a future release of LifeBoat.

I'm not able to do such work in Linux yet, especially not Debian.

No one anywhere I checked new whether or not the Pocket PC OS on the Toshiba could be changed to Palm OS. The software I wanted to use is only written for Palm OS, so I bought another pda which runs Palm OS; and then bought the software. It works great, and no hoops to jump through!

Now I have a Toshiba pda that I will sell.
