    Question background image

    How do I use an image for a background without it repeating/tiling itself? I just want the one image as the background - one tile, not repeated over and over. Is there code for that, or is it more complicated?

    Adding BGPROPERTIES="fixed" to the BODY tag will keep your background fixed (IE only, I believe).

    Exclamation bgproperties="fixed"?

    Hmm.. that command didn't work and I'm using Internet Explorer... Any ideas?
    <body background="background.gif" bgproperties="fixed" text="FFFFFF" link="CCFF99" vlink="yellow" alink="white">

    Arrow

    I'm actually working on this page remotely until my mom's web hosting goes through.. then I can put it on the web. (She is having me do this webpage for her)..

    I did find this at idocs.com--
    BGPROPERTIES creates a "watermark" on the page, a background image which does not scroll with the rest of the page. BGPROPERTIES must be used with the value FIXED. BGPROPERTIES, a MSIE extension, must be used with the BACKGROUND attribute.

    So what that does is allow the text to scroll, but the background to stay put. I have this background that kind of looks like a frame of flowers. I don't want it to repeat a hundred times on the page like you would want a seamless background to do. I just want the one image. Ehh.. why does she want this background..

    Lightbulb background no-repeat

    You have to use CSS...

    <style>
    {background: white url(background.jpg) no-repeat}
    </style>

    you can also use the values "center" "left" and "right" after the no-repeat command.

    but the picture has to be the size of the web page.. which is what i am having the problem with.. it wont stretch the image to fit.

    Question Background Trouble

    I am having a problem with getting my background with a left side border not to repeat. My friend gave me the code bgproperties="fixed" but it still repeats and now the left border is both a left and right border. I like this background that I made myself and I REALLY want to be able to use it. How can I make it work?
