repeat instead of stretch

P: 5
When you give an image a certain height or width that is different from its original, html stretches the image, is there a possibility how you can repeat that image in that area instead of stretching it?

Make it a background image, then repeat it:
background-image:url('yourimage.png');
background-repeat:repeat-x;

and/or y.

Why are you unable to make it a background image?

If you need it a certain size to fill a space and you don't want it to be a background image, you'll need to rebuild the image to tile the biggest space you can imagine it will need, then position it so other div layers hide the bits that aren't necessary.

Which seems like a whole lot of gyration because a background-image is the way to go to save your hair!
