I would like to load an image as a background for a table, but the image is tiling (repeating in blocks). I just want the image to appear as a whole for the background. Is this is not possible, can I load an image on the page and place drop down menus directly on the image using javascript or style sheets.

Just a few thoughts:

I would like to know of a good way to do this as well in just html, but there are other ways around it I suppose.  Like you could make the image the size of the table, by just extending white space out a lot, you could make it the background of just a <TD> tag instead thus reducing the size you would have to make it to prevent tiling.

As far as placing drop down menus directly on the image, I'm not exactly sure how that would work.  You want the form drop select to appear to be placed within another image or something?  Sound to me like this might work better using Java or something other than HTML.

If you use DHTML use layers.
Put the image on one layer, and the table on top on another one.
