Hi Mike,

Yeah, had a good weekend. Hope yours was good too, with some progress in the book....

You can add backgrounds similar to how you put them in other documents. However, since the iframe results in a complete new document (with its own DOM etc), you shouldn't apply the style tag to the iframe, but to the document that lives inside the iframe:

This won't work:
<iframe src="SomePage.html" style="background-image: url(SomeImage.gif);" />

However, if you apply the style to an element in SomePage.html, it should work:

  <body style="background-image: url(SomeImage.gif);">
    Some Content

Hope this helps,
