you want to add an image or a plain color as background for
your page you need to specify it in the <body>-tag.
Simply adding a backgroundcolor to
your page is easy. All you need to do is add a bgcolor-property
to the bodytag:
here to learn about the hexadecimal
system (f.ex. "#FF00CC") used in HTML to indicate
you want to add a backgroundimage instead of a plain color
there are some considerations you should make before doing
the backgroundimage discrete enough to not take away the
focus from whats written on it.
the backgroundimage work with the textcolors and linkcolors
I set up for the page.
the backgroundimage work with the other images I want to
put on the page.
long will the page take to load my backgroundimage. Is it
simply too big.
the backgroundimage work when it is copied to fill the entire
page. In all screen-resolutions.
answering these questions, and still wanting to add the backgroundimage
you will need to specify inthe <body>-tag which
image should be used for the background:
you choose to use a backgroundimage for the page it is always
a good idea to specify a backgroundcolor as well.
reason is that untill the backgroundimage is loaded, the backgroundcolor
will be shown. If the difference between the backgroundcolor
and the backgroundimage is too big it will be disturbing once
the browser shifts the backgroundcolor with the image. Therefore
it is a good idea to specify a backgroundcolor that matches
the colors of the image as close as possible.
background image will scroll when the user scrolls down the
page, unless you have set it to be fixed:
adding the bgproperties="fixed"
you force the browser to let the background be fixed even
if the user is scrolling down the page. This effect is sometimes
referred to as creating a watermark.
Watermarks does not work in netscape browsers - instead they
simply act as normal backgrounds.
