Mozilla Plugin Background

Msg#: 4233000 posted 10:53 am on Nov 21, 2010 (gmt 0)

Hello i have noticed that Mozilla has a cool background for plug ins your browser may need on the <embed> tag

if you add this line in a .html file and load with mozilla you will see what i mean...
<embed src="" width="300px" height="300"></embed>

is there a way i could use this background on other things like inside a CSS Class or whatever?

i have tried to get the image in paint but the lines dont match well ...

I do see what you mean! I can't see any way you could get this to work though.

You could make an image in paint but it's a matter of trial and error to get the diagonal lines to line up on repeat - you just need to adjust it 1px at a time until your sample of the lines is exactly the right width that they line up when repeated. I have never actually made a repeating background of this nature though and I'm sure there must be tricks to make it easier.
