OK, I have this page...

How can I prevent the image in the <body> tag from repeating on the scrolling pages like the one above?

Thanks!

It seems that you want the background image to repeat horizontally & not vertically?  You can also then cut down on the background image some.  Instead of using it in the BODY tag, put this in the <HEAD>:

<style type="text/css">
body
{
background-image: url("../img/subback.gif");
background-repeat: repeat-x
}
</style>

That will have the background image repeat horizontally & that it is.  http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_background.asp

add this in the head section:


<STYLE type="text/css">
       BODY {
         background: white url("../img/subback.gif");
         background-repeat: repeat-x;
       }
</STYLE>


and delete the background image from your body tag.
