    Background image

    brisboy Level 1
      Hi
      I have an image that i want to use as a background on a very simple page.
      It is 1200x400 and i want it to sit on the bottom of the page at all times, even when the window is pulled up.
      But mainly i want it to scale proportionally.
      Can this be done?
      Many Thanks

          Background images don't scale, they tile. You cannot scale a background
          image.

          You can use CSS - background-position:left bottom; - to place the image at
          the bottom of the container, but if the page scrolls the image will also
          scroll. If you make the image the background for the body tag, then you can
          use CSS again - background-attachment:fixed - to anchor the image to the
          bottom of the page, and now all scrolling will appear to pass over the
          background image.

          Make sense?

            Thankyou!
            Just what i needed for now.

              Right, if you want an all-Flash site.

                      I think if a few very wel known bands and musians did a website
                      largely of Flash and a small amount of html text - their high profile
                      and large wallets could get them paid for entries in the big search
                      engines. Many of their fans could then have fan sites that point to
                      their official sites.

                      But for the rest of us ?

                          Is lack of spiderability the only drawback to an all-flash site?

                                        I'm tired of this. I'm off to Rita's Water Ice to have one of those
                                        wonderful Italian glissandes.

                                          Hi
                                          OK i have it set up, i have positioned the background by editing the body css.
                                          How can i make the background load first?

                                            You cannot. It will be FETCHED in the order in which it's encountered in the
                                            code reading from <html> to </html>, but it will appear on the page in the
                                            order that it arrives at the client browser. If the image is heavy, this
                                            could be a significant delay.

                                              Scaling background images will become possible with CSS 3. Opera 9.5
                                              already supports this particular feature, so I would expect Firefox to
                                              catch up in a few months.

                                                  Don't know. The spec just says _what_ to do, it's up to the browser
                                                  vendors to decide _how_ to do it. It will usually also depend on the
