Backgrounds on table rows

A background on a TR doesn't work. Instead the TDs inherit the TR's background image.

Since you are applying the background to the top TR only, a workround would be to place the background image as the background of the parent TABLE element instead of in the TR element. As long as you only need to style the top TR, this could work.

I was having the same problem. To solve it, I created a style containing a background image. I applied the style to the table row and it worked!
