Hi zattz,
Does the CSS file locate under same folder with the defined background's image? If no, you need to move up(depend the hierarchy level) from the existing hierarchy to get the image.
 background: #FFF url(../images/content-fill.gif) repeat-y left;

If this is internal CSS, make sure the image file exist in the appointed "images" folder.
