Background Tricks

Using the "style attribute" to add background images and color to your web page.

The is a lot to the asthetics in designing a good looking web page.

Having as many tools in your tool box as possible give you more options to produce just the right effect you are looking for. Here are a few things that you can do with backgrounds that may come in handy for just that special place on your page.

Netscape and Internet Explorer both support the style arguement for almost all HTML tags. In this particular case we will be using it for the paragraph "<p>" tag.

You can place a background image behind your paragraphs and at the same time control the tiling of the image.

This property accepts one of four keyword values that determine the tiling action for the background image. The default value, repeat, repeats the image both horizontally and vertically to fill the element area. This is the kind of image tiling you are accustomed to seeing in most documents. This paragraph demonstrates this behavior, repeating my sample background image to fill the entire paragraph area.

To suppress image tiling altogether, use the value no-repeat. The image will be displayed in the element's area just once, positioned either in the upper left-hand corner or wherever you indicated using the background-position property. As an example, this paragraph has my background image with the background-repeat property set to no-repeat. The image should appear just once in the upper left corner of this paragraph.

To allow only vertical tiling, set the property to repeat-y. The image will repeat vertically to fill the element area, but will only be shown once horizontally, regardless of the element width. This paragraph uses just such a repeat value, and you should see the background image running down the left margin like a ribbon.

If you can restrict tiling to the vertical axis, you can restrict it to the horizontal one as well. Use repeat-x to repeat the image across the element area without repeating down. This paragraph should have the image running across the top, with no vertical repeat.

Now that you know that you can throw in some background in to the paragraph tag lets add some more background options using the <B> bold tag.

The BOLD TAG can have it's own background style to it. In this instance we are not using an image but rather using the color Yellow.
