    For your first question put this is your <body> tag.

    style="background-repeat:no-repeat"

    For your second you can put action="mailto:yourname@yourmail.com" in the form tage or you can a script e.g. CGI and link it to your form.

    Hope that helps



    P.S For your first question you might find putting this in there two useful. It keeps your image static while your page is scrolled.

    Yes.. But this will only work if the user has email set up properly on their computer (not many), and they are also given the choice of sending it...

    The better way is to use a serverside form. Do you have access to any serverside langauges? PHP? ASP? CGI/Perl?

    To center bg image try this:

    style=" background-image:url(‘wombat.gif’);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-position:center"

    To center it horizontally only try:

    background-position:left center;

    Or you could declare it in your style sheet:

    body
    {
    background-image: url(wombat.gif);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: center
    }

    The background property is not inherited, so this would only apply to tag you apply it to e.g. body or p

    something that is quite naff about the mailto form is that when i tried it it poped up this big intimidating message saying that form was about to leave my message box and that it could contain sensitive info. the best is really to use a free form-2-email like at www.bravenet.com

    thats what i ws tellign you! its even worse than that , if you have a mountain of e-mails piling upin your outbox then your form will get sent after them when the user clicks on send/recieve or whatever. learn PHP and be forever at rest from questions like these
