CSS, DHTML, javascript: expert questions

For the experts:

I do have a CSS which starts with

      position: absolute; left:30px; top:10px; width:460px;
      font-size: 10pt;
      line-height: 12 pt;
      font-family: arial, sans-serif;
      background: #FFFFF0 url(grafisch/achtergrondblokjes.gif) repeat-y right;
      color: #000000;

There are two problems with it. The first is that de background does not align
at the right side but at the left side. What is wrong with is coding? Is it possible
to mimic a not to be written at background at the right side with dhtml using only statements in the

The second problem is the position statement. Without it, the font are perfectly
rendered in netscape 4.61. With the position clause the line-height is not observed.
Moreover the browser complaints that it can not find the init function in
      <link REL=Stylesheet HREF = "alforto.css" TYPE = "text/css">
      <script language="JavaScript">
      function init() {
       return true
      // -->
Without the position statement everything works perfectly well.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
