It tiles!  :)  It's 1700 x 1500 (and only 8.6k)

BTW, there are ways to make backgrounds not tile using CSS.  However those
ways are pretty unreliable and work better in IE than Netscape.

Cheers!  :)


P.S. - next time view page info instead of source.  You can get the
dimensions and file sizes of all images.
