well it doesn't. that makes it so that only the background color displays and not the image. but if i take out the "background:" part and leave just "background-image:" then only the background image will show and not the background color.
i want both to work, so that while it's loading it will still atleast have the background color.
keep in mind, that's in my theme's "default" file, and in the functions.php file for $dotitle i can set the table background color but that disables the image.
go to <snip> to see what i mean, as it loads it looks all messed up but once it's loaded it looks nice.

background is shorthand for background-color background-image background-repeat background-attachment background-position. Anything omitted will receive its default setting. In this case, no background image.
This thread is a bit old, so I hope someone is still reading it... ;-)
My understanding is that background is better supported by older browsers, hence preferable to the individual background-color, background-image, background-repeat, background-attachment, background-position.
Can anyone confirm if my understanding is correct?
