How do you ... create a fixed background image?
How do you make my background image stay in place while the contents are allowed to scroll?

This is an IE feature only, Netscape may adopt it someday, but don't hold your breath. There is no alternative to make this work in Netscape if the version you are using does not support it. This feature is not part of standard HTML coding, so it will appear as an error during validation.

Enter this property to your current staring BODY tag :


The CSS version of this feature would be similar to this :

<style type="text/css">
body {
background : #ffffff url(ImageName.gif) repeat fixed;

Do not create a second opening BODY tag. All web pages are allowed only one set of BODY tags. Having multiple ones will usually cause a blank page to show up in Netscape. IE is somehow forgiving on matters such as this.
