    Replace your current <body> tag in the page with it, located near the top of the page.

    You're only allowed to have 1 <body> tag per page, so replace the one that's currently there, rather than just adding a second.

    The page structure should look something like this:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title></title>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
    </html>

    Use CSS to do this correctly. Put this in the head of your page:

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