    Hello!

    Another newbie question about HTML. I used CSS code to have a stationary background. It sits still like a wallpaper and the text scrolls down above it- very nice!

    Problem is, my friend TW56 has 1024x748 display and he says the background doesnt fill his screen. Is that because I wrote the code in 800x600? is there any way around this? Can I stretch it so everybody sees a full background?

    This is the code I used:

    < style type="text/css">
    body
    {
    background-image:
    url("ivybridge800.jpg");
    background-repeat:
    no-repeat;
    background-attachment:
    fixed
    }
    </style >

    Your background image is a fixed size and set to no repeat. If it's an image that can be repeated without looking weird you can set it to repeat. Otherwise you can use javascript to expand and contract the image to fill the browser's background. Of course this will pixelate the image depending on how large the image is to start with.
