How do I keep the background from moving when scrolling?

Stationary Background

If you have a particular background image that you'd like to use on your site, but don't like the way that it looks on long pages because it gets tiled by browsers, here's help.

Add the "bgproperties" attribute to the <BODY> tag in your page. Here's an example <BODY> tag:

<BODY background="image.gif" bgproperties="fixed">

This makes the background stationary and only the text will move when users scroll up and down your page.
