background css property for body selector

P: 64

are css background properties that are set for body element considered for html selector when there are's any css background properties for html selector? or body element is an exception that for it background-image is inserted into margin area?

CSS properties are not inherited by default, you have to assign that by the inherit keyword (where valid).

ok, you're right but when i use for example below css
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. body {
  2. background: blue url('snow.jpg') no-repeat fixed;
  3. }
i watch this property affected based on window browser even without i say nothing about html , is it possible that there is default settings for browsers and that's caused that?
thanks alot
