Multiple Backgrounds with CSS3


CSS3 allows web designers to specify multiple background images for box elements, using nothing more than a simple comma-separated list.

Browser support for multiple backgrounds is relatively widespread with Mozilla Firefox (3.6+), Safari/Chrome (1.0/1.3+), Opera (10.5+) and even Internet Explorer (9.0+) all implementing the feature.

Here’s the code for this:

#example1 {
  width: 500px;
  height: 250px;
  background-image: url(sheep.png), url(betweengrassandsky.png);
  background-position: center bottom, left top;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;

How it Works
