Creating a fixed background image gives the effect of having a watermark on your Web pages, and it's easy to do in Microsoft FrontPage. Just use style rules to add the CSS to your Web page.

Difficulty: Average
Time Required: 5 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Open the page you want to add the background image in FrontPage.
  2. Click on the "Format" menu and choose "Style". In that dialog box, highlight the body tag in the "styles" box.
  3. Click "Modify" and then choose "Border..." in the "Format" menu.
  4. Switch to the "Shading" tab, and browse to the background picture you want to use.
  5. Change the repeat to "no-repeat" and the attachment to "fixed". Adjust the position with the horizontal and vertical position drop-down menus.
  6. Click "OK" three times and your picture will appear in the Normal and Preview windows.
