I would change the height from 100% to auto to maintain the aspect ratio of
the picture.

Off topic to the list maybe but this might also be interesting for those who
like SVG:

http://vectormagic.com/

It converts bitmaps to scalable vector graphics and does an impressive job
at that :)

 Which is mostly true but SVG can contain bitmaps and as the goal is to
 scale the bitmap to 100% anyway then using SVG as a container format would
 be appropriate (or at least identical to bitmaps, aside from file size).

 Unrelated, but here's an example of using SVG vectors for a background
 image...

Here's a CSS and HTML way of doing it for those browsers that understand
position:fixed,

For those browsers that don't you'd need to emulate it with JavaScript...
window.onscroll to move the #background down the page with the scroll
position.

Re: [WSG] Scaling a background image

  Hi,



 Has anyone been able to successfully scale a CSS background image to the
 current window size? I've done some research via Google and it appears this
 can't be done purely with CSS (at least not yet), maybe some JavaScript?

there is a way to do it by using svg images, but i'm unclear on the
process.  i think that the svg files has to be edited for the images to
scale to a screen's resolution.  but anyway, svg is the wave of the future
for web images.
cheers,
dwain
