Using CSS to Display a Non-Tiling Background Image within a Web Page

You can use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) Style Tags to display a non-tiling background image within your web page.

If you would like to display a background image on your web page, but don't want it to tile (repeat), place the following code between your <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags. This code will prevent your image from tiling and will center it within your page.

<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
BODY { background-image: url(yourimage.jpg) }
BODY { background-repeat: no-repeat }
BODY { background-position: center }

Copy and paste the above code into your HTML between your <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags. The text in red should lead to the image on your web server.

Please note: The image must reside on your web server. If your image is in a different directory than your web page, you must also include the directory name in front of your image name.

Example: images/yourimage.jpg

This is just one small example of how you can use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) Style Tags within your web page. For additional information on CSS, visit the CSS Tutorial section.
