Bogger background shows in Firefox but not in IE

Hi guys... I think I have fixed the problem. While searching for the answer there were quite a few people out there having the same issue. So I am going to post my final code with the hope that this will show in the future to help someone else.

My image was uploaded to photobucket. The "direct link" was the code copied and pasted.
I had removed the word $bgcolor and I had the word repeat at the end. Once I removed repeat and put $bgcolor back. Yipee!! it now works on both. If you are reading this because you have the same problem.
Here is what my current code looks like:

body {
background:$bgcolor url(http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss196/KimiBoustany/blogheader3rdtry72dpi.jpg);
margin:0;
color:$textcolor;
font:x-small Georgia Serif;
font-size/* */:/**/small;
font-size: /**/small;
text-align: center;
}

Kimi - I just checked it in Safari and Firefox on my Mac, Firefox and Internet Explorer in Windows. It loads beautifully everywhere.

GO KIMI! very stylish
I like the new background! It's hard to see the gray lettering in the "about me" section though.

oh Sunny.... you fixed it!
I just had to make mine look like yours. Hopefully one day we help someone else. :)

Kristie, you already know about me. ;-)

I will take a look.
