Have to set the <body> width. Your reference to setting "document background" makes me think JavaScript is in play here, but ??

CSS:
<body style="background-image(url(someimage.gif)); width:760px; margin:0px auto;">

JavaScript:
document.body.style.width = '760px';

you dont have to use a external Css file. You can have it one page and you can use any of the above mentioned methods to suit your need.
