background-color: #777777 not working in CSS

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

When I declare on HTML page

<LINK href="mycss.css" type="text/css" rel=stylesheet />
<BODY class=myclass>

in mycss.css

BODY          { FONT-WEIGHT: bold; FONT-SIZE: 12px; FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Geneva;
background-image: url(images/back.jpg); }

BODY.myclass  { FONT-WEIGHT: bold; FONT-SIZE: 15px; FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Geneva;
background-color: #777777; }

the background-color in the second declaration is NOT taken but the "normal"
background image back.jpg is used for the background.

How do I get #777777 as background-color ?
