CSS Property - Background Attachment

Initial: scroll

If a background image is specified, the CSS property "background-attachment" determines if the image is in a fixed position in relation to the screen or if it scrolls with the content.


background-color: red;
background-image: url(image.gif);
background-repeat: repeat-y;
background-attachment: fixed;

CSS1 core: UAs may treat "fixed" as "scroll". However, it is recommended they interpret "fixed" correctly, at least on the "HTML" and "BODY" elements, since there is no way for an author to provide an image only for those browsers that support "fixed". (CSS1 conformance)
