You can only have one background image per element using CSS, but you can nest elements to fake it:

<div id="wrapper">
<!-- content -->

body {
background: url(image1.jpg) left top no-repeat

#wrapper {
background: url(image2.jpg) left bottom repeat-x;

As of the CSS3 spec you can, but Safari is the only browser with any support for that at current, and it'll probably be a long time before we see the IEs catch up, so the above method is what you want to use. :)
