While you're at it, you may as well define all your background properties in the stylesheet.
background: (background-color) (background-image) (background-repeat) (background-attachment) (background-position);
background: white url(someimage.jpg) no-repeat fixed center center;
Disclaimer. (1) Whilst I will help you sometimes, if I feel like it, and my advice in relation to your actual question will be of good quality: my posts are to be taken with a pinch of salt. I will be sarcastic, deploy irony and include obscure cultural references for my own amusement without warning.
(2) You will gain nothing from complaining, and if you try to argue with me then you will not win. No matter how noble your battle seems, I am still better than you, don't be an hero.
