   I just tried this and 'background-repeat' values of repeat-x and
repeat-y do work (maybe you are on a different platforms and this 
behavior is divergent/buggy?) background-position does indeed not work

Try this example in NN4B3:
(Also note confirmation of Liam Quinn's comment about 'block-izing' 
inline styles)

div, span, ol { background-image:
                background-repeat: repeat-y }

text before
<div>This is an extensive division<br>of text with<br> many
text between

<span>This is an extensive span<br>of text with<br> many <br>breaks</span>
text between

text after


Thanks for all the comments,
