a MySpace Background Image, Default Behaviour
The default behaviour for
a MySpace background image is to tile.

only the size of the browser window that determines
the viewed size of the canvas. This will be an important
point to remember when working with other methods of
adding a MySpace background image.
The code for adding a MySpace background image is almost

the folder path images/. Place the following code in
your "About Me" edit box:
