flexible div background images?

Still mad at: http://emendationslist.com/rsllab/lab.html - but this is much more of a mind-bender for me.

now the issue is that the background image won't cover the entire div 9the three different color ones in a row) -- the images ARE larger than the max size of the div. YET - the orange (first) and blue (last) don;t work in IE - they work just fine in firefox and in chrome. the have to also work in IE

i have tried background-size: contain; and background-size: cover; -- neither work.

What i want is for the background image to flex with the div. if it won't - i'll do the whole thing with CSS (usually preferable) but in this case i was trying to avoid it.
