Ok I searched and cant find exactly what I need.

With CSS

Code: [ Select ]
body{background: url(image.gif) no-repeat 400px 400px;}


The first 400px sets the location from the left, the second sets the location from the top.

suzie: If I read you right, I think there wouldn't actually be transparency involved, but using an image that had the color and contrast washed out a bit.

I'm assuming you're wanting to emulate a watermark. (?)

Hi DM, no you can add 'background image' then use transparency to have it just about showing through the page.
I need to find a site to show what i mean. i think there is a way in DW to do this but i forget what buttons to touch. i'm only just learning the software DM.
I'll get back to you when i find something.
Thanks.

if you do that to the center CELL in the tamplete table it will get you thinggy into the middle... and you would be able to put text over it...
