What exactly are you surprised by?
I see no repeat-y in your CSS. Perhaps you are wanting repeat-x and are
surprised by the y repeat (which is part of the default repeat).
To repeat in other words: repeat in both directions is default for
background images. You have to specify restrictions if you do not want
But your case is misleading:
Your image is 980px wide and so is your div, so *of course* it cannot
repeat in the horizontal direction and since you have done nothing to
stop it repeating in the vertical direction, it does.
I have to go out to my backyard now and hit myself several times hard
with a handy bit of timber I keep for the purpose. Whenever I get cross

The problem is still the same? Am I still doing something wrong?
