Fixed Background - Non-scrolling Background

This little trick locks the background pattern, so if you scroll, you will notice the content moving, but NOT the background.

This is a trick you don't often but it's a rather cool thing (if the background of your website is suitable for this feature - mine isn't).

The downside is that it only works for Internet Explorer 4 and newer.

This trick is based by on a stylesheet feature.


The Trick

Put this in the <HEAD>-part of you document:

<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
BODY { background: url(/../images/mybackground.gif) fixed }

Make sure the background is not dominating your content, or the background is not somehow stringly related to the content.

You can get the same effect by adding


in the <body> tag as such:

<body background="/../images/mybackground.gif" bgproperties="fixed">

This does not work in Netscape.
