Help with a background bitmap

I notice that Front Page takes my 256 x 256 bit map image and "tiles" it to fill the background. Is there a way to keep this from happening? In other words - I'd prefer it "stretch" the image if needed to fill the background.

Thanks,
Chin

Or :

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

// browser test:
browserName = navigator.appName;
browserVer = parseInt(navigator.appVersion);
if (browserName == "Netscape" && browserVer >= 4 ||

I don't know of anyway to do this in frontpage.  One way is to make sure your picture is actually larger than the page.  This gets a bit messy however when you design for a low resolution and the users have high resolution.

I agree with Dassa although one thing to consider is that you can detect the user's screen resolution and show an appropriately sized image....

<Script Language="JavaScript">
<!--
  if (screen.width > 800)
  {
    document.write ("<Body Background='Image1.gif'");
  }
  else
  {
        document.write ("<Body Background='Image2.gif'");

  }
//-->
</Script>

Cheers
