Exactly why is my table row background image not showing up in Wordpress.

May be the stylesheet for that theme controlling it in some manner and when so, how can i override that to create the look show, or perhaps is there another fault leading to it to not appear?

Note another image within the table does display correctly so the road to the files appears to operate ok.

<table width="250" height="200" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="1">
<tr>
    <td WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="82" colspan="3"><img src="/wp-content/plugins/xxxxxxwidget/image1.png">
        </td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td style="background-image:url(/wp-content/plugins/xxxxxxwidget/image2.png) no-repeat center;" WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="45" colspan="3">
        </td>
    </tr>
</table>

Any suggestions?

Change

background-image:url(/wp-content/plugins/xxxxxxwidget/image2.png) no-repeat center;

to

background:url(/wp-content/plugins/xxxxxxwidget/image2.png) no-repeat center;
