Synopsis

This property defines whether or not the background image scrolls along with the element. This is generally applied to BODY only, and in fact is largely supported only for that element. It is theoretically possible to create “aligned” backgrounds in multiple elements using this property; see Chapter 6 for more details.

Example

BODY {background-attachment: scroll;}
DIV.fixbg {background-attachment: fixed;}
