Is it possible to break a graphical background so that the middle of the page has no background, but the background continues in the rest of the page?

no,
But some ideas:

- you'll have to make a background image that gives the desired effect

- use frames

- the BGCOLOR in table cells overrides the background image, so you could create a table in the middle with background color.

You could do it as per sybe's suggestion, but editing a bit of the image out sometines removes the flexibility you may need, for example if you are planning on filling the missing space with something positioned accurately.

You could chop your graphic up using something like 'dicer', then create a table (or a series of frames) with the background of each cell/(frame) being a part of the image, missing out the centre one, of course.
