    Question Smoothing background patterns?

    One major things that irks me about background patterns is the way they like to tile at the bottom of your page. Is there any way to have it "reverse tile" (I just made this phrase up) so that the bottom of the original tile merges with a fliped over version of itself so as to much more smoothly intergrate.

    I know I did not explain perfectly. I will use the analogy of a relection in water. Thats the effect I want. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    I understood what you meant and believe there's no way. Just because you can't tell to client which part of background is touching the bottom.

    Only way I can figure out is to have fixed height in layout.

    You could use a table with two <td>s and run a mirrored background image in the bottom one, or stack up <div>s to do the same thing. You'd need two separate images though.
