however i can't for the life of me figure out how to implement a background image inside the canvas. is there some command that tells it to use some feature of canvas, that if otherwise not called, won't allow normal graphics? his whole starfield is generated with a search engine form , and appears to just use a text period to represent stars. here's a link to his script:
how do i get a background image in that? or is it impossible?
i tried putting it in the body tag, but it just flashed the background image on the screen for a half a second and then went back to showing only the black background. i tried removing the background body color and replacing it with only background-image ccs, same problem. i tried div positioning it, but the div just covered up the starfield.
