Background Picture
Introduction
This allows you to set a picture as the background of your web page. Doing this can really make your site look creative and greatly improve the overall look.
Normal Picture Background
Here, you will learn how to set a picture as the background of your web page. The tag for the background picture looks like BACKGROUND=. This is added onto the body tag so the end result looks like

<BODY BACKGROUND="url">.

The text "url" is replaced by the internet address leading to the picture you want on the background. Below is an example of using the picture background tag.

index.html - Notepad
....<BODY BACKGROUND="images/bg.gif">



</BODY>....

My Homepage - Microsoft Internet Explorer

Fixed Picture Background
A fixed background allows you to scroll with the text, but the background stays in the same place. To do this, insert the tag BGPROPERTIES="fixed" which adds onto your body tag so the final result looks like

<BODY BACKGROUND="url" BGPROPERTIES="fixed">

index.html - Notepad
....<BODY BACKGROUND="images/bg.gif" BGPROPERTIES="fixed">
