Is it possible to use HTML 5 to create a gradient background? If so how is that done?

In theory (just do a search for CSS3 gradient or HTML5 gradient) - but the current implementation really looks kind of crappy, IMO.

It's done in CSS

The best way to see how all this stuff is done is study some of the HTML/CSS frameworks out there like Twitter Bootstrap as they do a little bit of everything and you can easily learn all the basics by seeing how it's done.

Not only that, you can use a framework to build a site with all those fancy features today, not after you've figured it all out.

Thanks, so you don't need to use an image background to create a gradient background?

Try a search for CSS gradient.
