I have this bit of code that stops a background form repeating and aslo makes it fixed. Thing is that it was working and now for some reason its not.

It image is still scrolling .

This is the bit of code:-
<P
STYLE="background-repeat: no-repeat; background-image: url(background.jpg);background-attachment: fixed; )">

Is there another way or do you know why this is not working?

try this
<body BACKGROUND="background.jpg" BGPROPERTIES=FIXED>

if you want no repeat u can make no repeat background, the only is make a big image that fit large size resolution with white or whatever u think is the best

Actually you either have to use the <body bgproperties=fixed>, but this does only work with Microsoft Internet Explorer.

A different approach are Cascading Stylesheets (CSS), but your snippet is faulty. Try this:

<head>
  <title>Your title</head>
  <style type="text/css"><!--
    body {
      background : url("/img/background.jpg") no-repeat fixed;
    }
  --></style>
</head>

<body background="/img/background.jpg ...>

Instead of no-repeat you can use repeat-x, repeat-y or repeat. Instead of fixed you can use scroll. Netscape does not support the fixed attribute, maybe the next version will support CSS Level 1 a little better.

The CSS is the shorthand notation for background. The long would be:

background-image: url("/img/background.jpg");
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;
