My website, http://www.manana.mx, looks great with every other browser (including Firefox of course), but with Camino the background colors are not appearing. My tables have black backgrounds that appear in every browser except Camino.

In your html you have:
Code: Select all
<table bgcolor="000000" style="width: 100%;">

make that
Code: Select all
<table bgcolor="#000000" style="width: 100%;">

you are missing the '#' for your table background color.

PS - Consider using stylesheets for styling your pages.

Thanks very much, I use Joomla and their editor created the articles and I guess something went wrong. I didn't worry about it until I had seen the site in Camino and sometimes another pair of eyeballs will see what I cannot. While I realize the code was incorrect, it seems Camino was particularly unforgiving, much more than all the other browsers. That may or may not be something the developers want to address. Thank you again!

What version of Firefox allowed that code to "look great"?

Probably Firefox with html5 parser (4+ ?). That code used to be invalid, period. under html5 parsing rules it became 'invalid but conforming', meaning it rendering engines are supposed to auto-correct it. Even in Standards Mode. Because, you know, IE6 did it and there are some pages relying on it.

There are things in html5 that annoy me massively…
