Set a background-image for the body element:
The background-image property sets one or more background images for an element.
The background of an element is the total size of the element, including padding and border (but not the margin).
By default, a background-image is placed at the top-left corner of an element, and repeated both vertically and horizontally.
The background-image property is supported in all major browsers.
Note: IE8 and earlier do not support multiple background images on one element.
Note: The value "inherit" is not supported in IE7 and earlier. IE8 requires a !DOCTYPE. IE9 supports "inherit".
Tip: Always set a background-color to be used if the image is unavailable.
|url('URL')||The URL to the image. To specify more than one image, separate the URLs with a comma|
|none||No background image will be displayed. This is default|
|inherit||Specifies that the background image should be inherited from the parent element|
Multiple background images
