body {background-image: url(backgrounds/watermark.gif);

background-repeat: no-repeat
A popular trick is to create a vertical ribbon down the righthand side of
the page:
body {background-image: url(backgrounds/ribbon.gif);
background-position: top right;
background-repeat: repeat-y
} The background property
Like the various font properties, the many background CSS2 properties
can get cumbersome to write and hard to read later. So, like the font
property, there is also a general background property.
The background property accepts values from any and all of the
background-color, background-image, background-attachment,
background-repeat , and background-position properties, in any order. If
you do not specify values for some of the properties, those properties
are explicitly set to their default values. Thus:
background: red
sets the background-color property to red and resets the other back-
ground properties to their default values. A more complex example:
background: url(backgrounds/marble.gif) blue repeat-y fixed center
