Win98se with firefox 2.something.
I don't think this is a OS/browser dependent problem.
It's just that I use a nonwhite background for my window panes in 
Windows.
In Linux, using Konqueror or mozilla I get a white background because I 
did not bother to change the default background there.

(This is a common mistake I've found on several websites. I guess it's 
due to the fact that developers are keen to use a default white 
background for their environment, so they won't notice the missin html 
tag, or css line).

> The background is "white enough" with (Linux && (firefox 2.0.0.3 ||

> 9.54)

You might want to try to change the windows's background color in 
Windows display's properties (I guess win2k will behave in the same way 
win98 does).

Here's what I see:
