Recipe 2.4 Setting a Background Image


You want a background image that doesn't repeat.


Use the background-image and background-repeat properties to control the display of an image (see Figure 2-9):

body {

 background-image: url(bkgd.jpg);

 background-repeat: no-repeat;


Figure 2-9. The background image displayed once in the upper right corner


You can place text and other inline images over a background image to create a sense of depth on a web page. Also, you can provide a framing device for the web page by tiling a background image along the sides of a web browser.
