I'm new to multiple backgrounds in css3 but a peer of mine said that it might fix my problem.  I have a website with a content background that is an image that I need to stack in the middle.  So I have sliced an image into three different images and applied the css but I am having some repeating problems.

Here is site:

code snippet:

#page {
      /*background: url('images/page_bg.png')no-repeat;
      background-size:100%;
      border: 1px solid #bbb;*/
      
      background-image: url('images/page_bg_top.png'),
            url('images/page_bg_middle.png'),
            url('images/page_bg_bottom.png');
      background-repeat: no-repeat, repeat-y, no-repeat;
      background-size:100%;
      border-radius: 10px;
}

Remove the second and third background images from #page. Adjust the background-repeat to background-repeat:no-repeat.

Add the second background image to #main. Add background-size:100%

Add the third background image to the footer,  #colophon. Add background-size:100% and height:68px.

That may not be all you need to do, but it will get you close.

You need to manage and position in 3 dimensions and manage the stacking order of the images.

This page with multiple backgrounds and transitions might help

You may want to use percentages for the positioning if you are trying to keep the page responsive, though you can also script re-alignment if you want to beat yourself up.
