You know that you can view the source, right?

Actually they are using are background image:


body {
margin:0;
padding:9px 0;
text-align:center;
background:#fff url('/images/background.png') repeat-x;
font-size:12px;
font-family:verdana,arial,monaco,sans-serif;
}

And the background image: http://www.coffeecup.com/images/background.png

ah, i see. Surely it would take longer to load that repeated image. Thanks for the insight though

The image only needs to be downloaded once, and the Browser does the repeating of the image. Saves your bandwidth and the page rendering time.

It's about 2.4k; that's not very big...
