The background image of this page fills the screen on my computer but not on my LG Stylo. Please take a look at the css and html and let me know how to remedy that. www.dijitalrealm.com/JCMusic/Jukebox2.html.

I don't see anything in your code that would change the size of the background image based on screen size. So it should extend way beyond the left and right sides and bottom of your android phone screen. But it would be clipped at the edges of the body element of which it is the background image. So if it isn't filling the screen of your phone, that would suggest that the body element doesn't fill the screen. Is the color of the area that isn't filled with the image dark gray? The background color for your body is dark gray which should appear anywhere the image doesn't cover the body element. If it is not dark gray, then the body element is somehow smaller than the screen.

Since you have established the left and right margin of your body element to auto, if the body element is somehow narrower than the screen, there should be a white area on both the left and right sides. Is this the case on your phone?

By the way, the background-position property is usually expressed in two values, one for horizontal and one for vertical positions. When only one value is supplied, the other value defaults to center. So background-position: top; equates to background-position: center top; and background-position: left; equates to background-position: left center.

Your web page appears to be pretty normal for a webpage as you have not put the following code before your content html.

<div id="wrapper">

A lot of sites don't span the full screen length (i.e. fixed width sites), so webmasters use a "wrapper" to set the appropriate width and act as a full screen would.

Try to add the viewport Meta t your page to see if this fix the problem.

 <!-- Tell the browser to be responsive to screen width -->
 <meta content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no" name="viewport">

Thank you for your help on this, guys. lenamtl, I meant to split the points evenly between the 3 of you but i hit the wrong button before finishing and you got left out. I don't know how to re-do the awarding process so please forgive me.
