    Try putting a &nbsp; in the middle of the nav2 div; Empty divs have an odd tendency to disappear.
  • Just tried that, it still wont show for some reason :(

    Basically xhtml standards stipulate that empty divs do not exist (since there is nothing in them). I agree with Bergamot. I think you need to put some dummy text into your nav divs. Either that, or your image paths might be wrong if you're still not seeing background images.
  • Add border: 1px solid red; to all your div's in the css and you'll be able to see what they are all doing. Or you can change the colors to see which one is doing what...

    That may show you where that one div is ending up. Feel free to email me if you want some extra help. brian [dot] zollinhofer [at] gmail

    My tip: install Firefox and its web developer toolbar, then use the outline menu to show you all DIVs
