    What version of Contribute are you using? I copied your source and tested in
    Contribute CS3 and could edit the page without any problems... Maybe an older
    version has problems with the CSS you use in the page.

    Hi,
    thanks so much for getting back to me. My client and I are both using version
    3. I narrowed down the code that is giving me the problem:

    /* ROUNDED CORNERS BOX */
    .bl {background: url(../images/lower-left.gif) 0 100% no-repeat #fff; width:
    17em; background-color: #fff; background-color: #fff;}
    .br {background: url(../images/lower-right.gif) 100% 100% no-repeat}
    .tl {background: url(../images/upper-left.gif) 0 0 no-repeat}
    .tr {background: url(../images/upper-right.gif) 100% 0 no-repeat; padding:
    10px 9px 10px 9px; background-color: #fff;}
    .clear {font-size: 1px; height: 1px;}


    .bl-r {background: url(../images/lower-left.gif) 0 100% no-repeat #fff; width:
    40em; background-color: #fff;}
    *.bl-r {background: url(../images/lower-left.gif) 0 100% no-repeat #fff;
    width: 38.5em}
    .br-r {background: url(../images/lower-right.gif) 100% 100% no-repeat}
    .tl-r {background: url(../images/upper-left.gif) 0 0 no-repeat}
    .tr-r {background: url(../images/upper-right.gif) 100% 0 no-repeat; padding:
    10px 9px 10px 9px; background-color: #fff;}
    .clear-r {font-size: 1px; height: 1px;}

    .bl-h {background: url(../images/lower-left_header.jpg) 0 100% no-repeat #fff;
    width: 21em; background-color: #dfdfdf;}
    .br-h {background: url(../images/lower-right_header.jpg) 100% 100% no-repeat}
    .tl-h {background: url(../images/upper-left_header.jpg) 0 0 no-repeat}
    .tr-h {background: url(../images/upper-right_header.jpg) 100% 0 no-repeat;
    padding: 10px 9px 10px 9px}
    .clear-h {font-size: 1px; height: 1px;}

    .bl-i {background: url(../images/lower-left.gif) 0 100% no-repeat #fff; width:
    57em}
    .br-i {background: url(../images/lower-right.gif) 100% 100% no-repeat}
    .tl-i {background: url(../images/upper-left.gif) 0 0 no-repeat}
    .tr-i {background: url(../images/upper-right.gif) 100% 0 no-repeat; padding:
    10px 39px 10px 9px}
    .clear-i {font-size: 1px; height: 1px;}

    specifically the bl and tr wher I added the background-color: #fff.
    then the edit contribute screen is OK to edit, but I loose all but one rounded
    corner.
    Here's the current URL:
    [url]http://earlychildhoodoptions.org/trialfolder/trial02.html[/url]
    More thoughts?

    Try this:

    .bl {background: url(../images/lower-left.gif) no-repeat #fff; width: 17em;}

    instead of:

    .bl {background: url(../images/lower-left.gif) 0 100% no-repeat #fff; width:
    17em; background-color: #fff; background-color: #fff;}

    :embarrassment;
    sorry to have not responded and been away so long...
    Still working on this project: http://earlychildhoodoptions.org/trial01.html
    where I'm getting a black background to the areas that have rounded corners.
    I made the change below to no avail. I also tried various graphics file
    formats: .gif, .jpg, .png. I had hoped one of those might make a difference.
    None of those tries worked.
    The version I'm using is still Contribute3.
    thanks for any help

    Found the answer
    in this line from below:
    /* ROUNDED CORNERS BOX */
    .bl {background: url(../images/lower-left.gif) 0 100% no-repeat #fff; width:
    17em;
    the "0" needs to have have a unit.
    so what I ended up with was this:
    /* ROUNDED CORNERS BOX */
    .bl {background: url(../images/lower-left.gif) 0px 100% no-repeat #fff; width:
    17em;
