2 layers fixed background ?

hi,

I designed a background for a page. it is for 1024*768 screens. but
everyday, the screen go larger and I dont want everyone to wait for a
backgroud larger than needed. so I used a tiled neutral background and
used a fixed <div> to show my background.

but doing so, I can not have a fixed background with text "floating"
above it. :(

any idea of how I can do that, I mean a fixed background and for
larger screen resolution, some tile that fill in the gap.

TIA,
Pierre.

Not completely true. With more portable devices arriving, it would be
more true to say that screen sizes are getting more diverse. And don't
forget that not everyone wants all their windows maximised.
and I dont want everyone to wait for a

Good.

Not in HTML, but it can probably be done with CSS. I haven't tried it
myself, but read up on absolute position and z-index. They might do what
you want.
