The background-image property sets the background image of an element.


BODY { background-image: url(/images/star.jpg) }
P { background-image: url( }

When a background image is defined, a similar background color should also be defined for those not loading images.

Authors may also use the shorthand background property, which is currently better supported than the background-image property.
