Can a background image be on top of all other things ?

Mel
was wondering if an background image can be placed on each page so that
irrespective of content of a page (table, div etc.) it is always shown
at certain location ?

an example will be most helpful

Isn't that contradicting your subject line?
You can position a background image anywhere you like, respective of
the element you set it to. If you want it in the same place on every
page, I'd set it to body.
But that's not the same as "on top of all other things".
On top would mean either 'not as background', or as background to an
element that's positioned with position:absolu te;, but then it would
only be placed on top of all the other stuff, if that element were
last in the HTML.

You make one :-)

Hi, my problem: I have some tables with transparent backgrounds, which are changed in colours within a JavaScript DOM function to have a roll-over effect. Now, i can't get them back transparent when leaving the mouse out of the rollover-box - background-color: none; seems not to work. Isn't it possible to do this with CSS?

Hi all, I am using a background image via a stylsheet. I've used this code: background-image:url("/images/tile.gif"); (which I think is correct) The image doesn't show up however, the path, the filename etc etc, everything checks out ok.

The first method I ever used for multiple state buttons was to create a graphic for each button for each state: AboutUs_on, AbooutUs_over, AboutUs_out, etc. That works great when there are just a few buttons. I'm creating interfaces now with many more buttons than "just a few". I solved the maintenance problem by having generic button images, one for each state, and having them be background images for text containers, DIVs in this...

Hi. I am relatively new to CSS and HTML but have a basic understanding of most things. One of my backgrounds is not positioning correctly in IE 7 or AOL.
