Jpeg background not showing up in IE? Try this

If you have a JPEG image from your graphic designer that refuses to display in Internet Explorer even after triple-checking the CSS and the markup, check if it's formatted in CMYK instead of RGB. It's a stupid little mistake, but it might take quite some time and a lot of cuss words before you figure out what's wrong.

With Photoshop, select Image>Mode>RGB to fix this problem.

If that isn't the problem, consider revisiting the code and make sure the image format used is supported by all browsers.
