ASP.net using image as screen background for website

Hi. I am trying to use an image as the large background area around my ASP.net site
I inserted the line "background-image" in the Site.css file as shown below but the image doesn't show


    background: #001E00;
    background-image: "~/Resources/t.jpg"
    font-size: .80em;
    font-family: "Helvetica Neue", "Lucida Grande", "Segoe UI", Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 0px;
    color: #696969;

I'm not sure if the ~/... notation is supported in css, also some syntax problems, this does work:
background-image: url('/Resources/t.jpg');
