What I found odd is that the body background colour isn't even defined in the CSS portion. So are you getting a white background outside of the information boxes?

As is, only two sections are defined to have the colour; #5A5A5A, which is not a standard web safe colour, which may cause old browsers to choke, but Internet Explorer 5.1 for Mac had excellent support for CSS 1 and basic support for CSS 2. I'm not sure why you are getting any problems with it however. The source looks all right (though, it isn't officially valid either).

Do you have an user stylesheets set up in IE?

Skyhook - FWIW, Internet Explorer for OS X also has the same problem.

It seems that IE can't handle the CSS and background setting very well. I know that with Firefox (and the excellent Web Developer Extension), I can change the background colour, and it yields the exact same symptom as IE (Except I choose the colour, and why IE chooses blue makes no sense. There is nothing defined as blue anywhere in the source code).
