Setting a Background Image

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):

body {
 background-image: url(bkgd.jpg);
 background-repeat: no-repeat; 

The background image displayed once in the upper-left 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.
