Background Image not showing up in IE8

So I have a tiny header image that repeats on the x axis, but for some reason it won't show up in IE8. Anyone know a work around?

    <span class="description">In After Genocide leading scholars and practitioners analyse the political, legal and regional impact of events in post-genocide Rwanda within the broader themes of transitional justice, reconstruction and reconciliation. Given the 
forthcoming fifteenth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, and continued mass violence in Africa, especially in Darfur, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and northern Uganda, this volume is unquestionably of continuing relevance. </span>

    This book should be labeled for the mature individual only. But for that mature individual it is of extreme interest. 
    It shows, far from any Manichean stereotyping, the many facets of having to try to live in an impossibly complex social

Try adding a space between ) and repeat-x.


Correct code after adding space looks like this:

#header {
    background:url("images/headback.png") repeat-x;
    width:1020px;
    height:120px;
    font-family:arial;
    position:relative;
}
