Please look at http://rkassoc.net/DrainageHouston/

Notice how the background image (drawing) covers the entire page, not just the body.

I want it to be a background image for the body only. See attached html / CSS. How can I make it for the body ONLY?

Thanks

Fiddle around with this:
body
{
background-image:url('img.jpg');
background-repeat:no-repeat;
background-attachment:fixed;
background-position:center;
}




I think you want it to stay center / fixed and not be repeated .

Well, sort of. I DID want it to repeat, but just under the body. If I do no-repeat, I get it once, centered.

So I redid the background so it was an EXACT fit (width wise) for the background area.

CSS is awfully non-intuitive for some things.
