Now we'll look at how to use an image as a background for your page.
You'll have noticed that the image tiled to fit the entire window. therefore, you have to be quite choosy about the images you use for a background. If it's too heavily patterned or too close to the colour of the text on the page your content will not be seen. Also, you've got to be aware that large graphics will slow the downloading of your page - possibly to the point when they'll hit the STOP button and move on elsewhere. I don't know about you but I tend not to hang around too long waiting for a page to download unless I'm 100% positive that it's going to be worth it. So, bear it mind when choosing a graphic for your site. This applies equally to any graphic elements to your web pages - more about those later in the series.
