    Angry background images

    Can you have more then one image as a back ground? I have a back ground color and a picture of a poodle at the left hand side. I have a gif image of dog prints (transparent) and want them to look as if he walked across the page . Is this even possible.

    here is my css for the body
    Code:
    body { font-family: verdana, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;
           background-color: #d6a7f9;
           background-image: url(pawprintsTrans.gif) float: right;
           line-height: 125%;
           padding: 15PX;
           margin: 0; }
    Thanks for your help

    OK I got it to work, getting the image on the page.

    not want I wanted tho. I just wanted one track to go across the page not to fill the page up, background was the wrong thing to use. I'll try just an image some where.

    Ok the image thing doesn't work either, so I'll just give up on that idea and stick to trying to make simple web pages. Thanks for all your time, hope I didn't waste too much of it .

    Sorry no one answered your post before you found a solution (or didn't find a solution....) If I were doing it, I would just combine the two images in Photoshop and avoid the question entirely. Apparently CSS3 is going to implement some kind of background image layering, and Safari 1.3 supports it now. But that doesn't help you much.

    Thank for the reply. I got the image on the page ok. now I would like it to go across the whole page. The header and the width of the page after my image that is on the left side blocks the paw prints on the right side. I guess the image reserves the whole width of the page. dumb, dumb, dumb.

    Is there a way I can make the little paw prints go all the way across the page so the image I have and the paragraphs don't block it out.

    Thanks muchly for your help
