    I see no reason why you should not be able to add the background-image to the division which holds the content here:

    Code:
    txt+='<div id="inner" style="position:absolute; visibility:visible; left:2px; top:2px; width:'+(boxwidth-4)+'; overflow:hidden; cursor:default;">'+content+'</div>';
    And the same for the layer which is used for older NS browsers...
