HTML 5 Responsive site background

Msg#: 4532550 posted 5:54 pm on Jan 2, 2013 (gmt 0)

There is an upcoming project that I will be converting to make more friendly to mobile devices. The problem is that is has a solid background color and a seacoast background. I'd like to be able to show more of it depending on the screen width. Because of the complexity of the images, I need some advice on how to do it properly.

Let me know and I can send an image...

HTML5 has nothing to do with it. The CSS is the same, too, though you might look into 'background-size'.

So you're probably looking for advice on how to do what you want but I started at 4:50AM for a site going live in an hour or so and I'm just too tired.

No problem. I'll look into background-size.

I've used svg images as backgrounds in the past: perfect for resizing, tiny filesize (at least for the gradients that i needed).

IE is braindead, but that you know and expect.
