I have a this small question, I not an HTML pro yet,
but wouldnt it be nice to have this on the langauge.
or are there any alternatives to doing this.

<td bgcolor="red"> 

makes that part of the table red you guys come up
with a markup like

 <td background="image.gif">

and that  picture would be tiled on to the table or be it's background
