Background Repeat

Syntax: background-repeat: <value>
Possible Values: repeat | repeat-x | repeat-y | no-repeat
Initial Value: repeat
Applies to: All elements
Inherited: No

The background-repeat property determines how a specified background image is repeated. The repeat-x value will repeat the image horizontally while the repeat-y value will repeat the image vertically. For example:

BODY { background: white url(candybar.gif);
       background-repeat: repeat-x }

In the above example, the image will only be tiled horizontally.

Authors may also use the shorthand background property, which is currently better supported than the background-repeat property.
