Background IMAGES (1)


The body text can be set with no background (default), or with a BGCOLOR attribute, or with a BACKGROUND attribute (composed of a URL image-pattern created as either a "GIF"-file or a "JPG/JPEG"-file) to be repeated uniformly throughout all the pages of the document. Ideally the image (usually a gif) should be as small as possible to minimise screen-delays.

The examples below use a <BODY BACKGROUND="img/filename.gif"> tag to call icon-sized images (ie. 32 x 32 pixels), so the background image should appear almost immediately.

Some of the patterns are great but the detail in each is far too small (each was hand-drawn on a 640x400 pixel screen) and the colours employed are far too strong or imposing to support text over... - Pvh 4/98).
