Background Attachment


Syntax: background-attachment: <value>
Possible Values: scroll | fixed
Initial Value: scroll
Applies to: All elements
Inherited: No

The background-attachment property determines if a specified background image will scroll with the content or be fixed with regard to the canvas. For example, the following specifies a fixed background image:

BODY { background: white url(candybar.gif);
       background-attachment: fixed }

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