and thank you Mya for responding.
I understand that I stretched the image too big, to fill up the whole box, but it looks very nice like that, instead of hiding in the corner.
which is why i want to keep it that way.
I personally have been using IE8 64bit, I don’t know what version my client is using, but it dissapears in both of ours
Thanks for your reply Ismael.
However I am building the site for a client and he thinks that the slider is too narrow for him.
