CSS Question

dynamically switching 'background-image' doesn't work in IE

I'm dynamically switching a div's background-image with the jquery bit below. Works just fine in FF, but turns out in IE it does not. Any ideas why? Does IE not reload the image if a css property changed? Any pointers would be appreciated.



Try setting backgroundImage instead of background-image.

CSS attributes, when accessed via Javascript, traditionally use camelCase instead of dashes, to avoid questions of syntax. ( looks like you're doing subtraction.) Firefox is probably progressive enough to allow the dashes as well, but IE... it would seem not.
