Mac I.E. 5.2 loses body style (page background) from CSS

Just a note to whomever this may be helpful to:

Using Milonic 5.32 on Mac OSX (Jaguar) Mac IE 5.2:

I lose my page background which I define in a linked CSS fle. The following is the CSS style which defines the repeating page background, a hairline image that runs down the left side of the page:

#internalbg {
background-image: url(graphics/common/hairline.gif);
background-repeat: repeat-y;
}

And the following is the body tag:
<body id="internalbg" onload="MM_preloadImages('../../graphics. . . . .

The background only gets lost on Mac I.E. All other browsers on mac and PC work fine.

Solution:
The solution was to remove the drawMenus() command from my menu_data.js (which I include in the <head> section along with all the other milonic files) and to instead place the drawMenus() command AFTER the <body> tag.

Of course I would imagine that placing all the scripts after the <body> tag would accomplish the same thing, but I like to keep the body clean as possible.

Hope this helps anyone seeing odd behavior on Mac IE.

I think I heard a similar solution where tables where concerned placing the drawmenus at the bottom of the page.

Would have liked to see an example;)
