    first here's my code::

    <style type="text/css">
    html, body {margin:0; padding:0; width:100%; height:100%; }
    body {font-family:verdana, arial, sans-serif; font-size:76%;}
    #background{position:absolute; background-attachment:fixed; z-index:0; width:100%; height:100%;}
    #fixed {position:absolute; z-index:10; solid #000; padding:10px;}

    </style>

    I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve. It makes no sense to use background-attachment if you don't at the same time specify a background-image.

    It sounds like you are trying to do fixed positioning. For this you would use position: fixed.

    Hmm... You are going about this in the wrong way.

    This is not a background image:
    Code:
    <div>
    <img id="background" src="parchment5.jpg" alt="" title="" />
    </div>
    This is the technique to put in a background image with fixed attachment:
    Code:
    div {
      background-image: url(parchment5.jpg);
      background-attachment: fixed;
    }
    Code:
    <div>
      [...]
    </div>
    Note that the above code is incomplete.

    Again, it is not clear what you want. Maybe it would be easier to understand what are trying to do if you gave us a link.

    You are missing a lot of stuff from the example I gave you. Here try this
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    html,body {
    width:100%;
    height:100%;
    overflow:hidden;
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    }
    
    body {
    font-family:verdana, arial, sans-serif;
    font-size:76%;
    }
    
    #background {
    position:absolute;
    z-index:1;
    width:100%;
    height:100%;
    }
    
    #scroller {
    position:absolute;
    width:100%;
    height:100%;
    top:0;
    left:0;
    overflow:auto;
    z-index:2;
    }
    
    #content {
    padding:10px;
    }
    
    p {
    line-height:1.8em;
    letter-spacing:.1em;
    text-align:justify;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>

    		<h1>ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND</h1>
    		<h3>Lewis Carroll</h3>
    		<h2>THE MILLENNIUM FULCRUM EDITION 3.0</h2>
    		<h3>CHAPTER I</h3>
    		<h4>Down the Rabbit-Hole</h4>
    		<p>Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister
    			on the bank, and of having nothing to do:  once or twice she had
    			peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no
    			pictures or conversations in it, 'and what is the use of a book,'
    			thought Alice 'without pictures or conversation?'</p>
    		<p>So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could,
    			for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether
    			the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble
    			of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White
    			Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.</p>
    		<p>There was nothing so VERY remarkable in that; nor did Alice
    			think it so VERY much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to
    			itself, 'Oh dear!  Oh dear!  I shall be late!'  (when she thought
    			it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have
    			wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural);
    			but when the Rabbit actually TOOK A WATCH OUT OF ITS WAISTCOAT-
    			POCKET, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to
    			her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never
    			before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to
    			take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the
    			field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop
    			down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.</p>
    		<p>In another moment down went Alice after it, never once
    			considering how in the world she was to get out again.</p>
    		<p>The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way,
    			and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a
    			moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself
    			falling down a very deep well.</p>
    		<p>Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she
    			had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to
    			wonder what was going to happen next.  First, she tried to look
    			down and make out what she was coming to, but it was too dark to
    			see anything; then she looked at the sides of the well, and
    			noticed that they were filled with cupboards and book-shelves;
    			here and there she saw maps and pictures hung upon pegs.  She
    			took down a jar from one of the shelves as she passed; it was
    			labelled 'ORANGE MARMALADE', but to her great disappointment it
    			was empty:  she did not like to drop the jar for fear of killing
    			somebody, so managed to put it into one of the cupboards as she
    			fell past it.</p>
    		<p>'Well!' thought Alice to herself, 'after such a fall as this, I
    			shall think nothing of tumbling down stairs!  How brave they'll
    			all think me at home!  Why, I wouldn't say anything about it,
    			even if I fell off the top of the house!' (Which was very likely
    			true.)</p>
    		<p>Down, down, down.  Would the fall NEVER come to an end!  'I
    			wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time?' she said aloud.
    			'I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth.  Let
    			me see:  that would be four thousand miles down, I think--' (for,
    			you see, Alice had learnt several things of this sort in her
    			lessons in the schoolroom, and though this was not a VERY good
    			opportunity for showing off her knowledge, as there was no one to
    			listen to her, still it was good practice to say it over) '--yes,
    			that's about the right distance--but then I wonder what Latitude
    			or Longitude I've got to?'  (Alice had no idea what Latitude was,
    			or Longitude either, but thought they were nice grand words to
    			say.)</p>
    		<p>Presently she began again.  'I wonder if I shall fall right
    			THROUGH the earth!  How funny it'll seem to come out among the
    			people that walk with their heads downward!  The Antipathies, I
    			think--' (she was rather glad there WAS no one listening, this
    			time, as it didn't sound at all the right word) '--but I shall
    			have to ask them what the name of the country is, you know.
    			Please, Ma'am, is this New Zealand or Australia?' (and she tried
    			to curtsey as she spoke--fancy CURTSEYING as you're falling
    			through the air!  Do you think you could manage it?)  'And what
    			an ignorant little girl she'll think me for asking!  No, it'll
    			never do to ask:  perhaps I shall see it written up somewhere.'</p>
