Is there a way to use an image as a background for a page, and have  that
background stretch to the correct size in relation to the viewer's browser?

Somebody asked me this, and I didn't think it was possible. I *was* able to
make a table at 100% then make a table cell with an img src set at 100% and
THAT stretched out the image perfectly, but obviously I can't put any
text/images etc over that image. (not including style sheets...still over
my head)

Is there something simple I'm missing? Maybe even a browser specific hack?

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
