Scalable background image and long content

P: n/a
dp
I'm playing with scalable background images in html 4.01 transitional .
The image scales ok in the viewport but I can't get it to scale beyond the
viewport
when there's long content that forces the vertical scroll bar.

From what I've been able to gather through web searches, I may be SOL.
Is there any way to scale the image to the page size and not just to the
viewport size?

That is really....very....ugly. Why would you even do that for?

It's just an ugly old pic laying around that was large enough for the
exercise.

I don't think he's talking about the picture. What looks so ugly to me is
the idea of using a scalable background image at all. Let's just hope you
put this aside as a proof of concept and never touch it again :-/

I agree with you. However, I have a requirement to demonstrate if it is
possible or not.
If I say it's not possible, I don't want to be blindsided by someone whose
12 year old sister did it.
I have no problem with saying it's possible but stupid - lol.

Can I take the lack of an alternative method from the group as an indication
that it's not possible as well as not preferable?

Or maybe that nobody else has any interest in the subject...

I rarely post questions to ciwas, but the last and maybe only time I
did, there was absolutely no response to my question. It wasn't a
mundane question, and I took it to mean that nobody had an answer. I
worked around it.

Dated Sep 19th 2003, you have an elephant memory.

Glazing over the message the author has a problem getting something to
work in IEWin, but (as a professional author) he doesn't have access to
IEWin so could we please fix it for him. He didn't reduce the problem in
a test case, he posted the full code.

You were rightly ignored.
