First, the background has to have the word "url" and
parentheses like this:
background: url(images/STACKS-BACK.JPG);

Make sure images is a sub-directory relative to wherever
the style sheet itself is stored.

Second, remove the quotes from around "Arial" (and make it lower
case, but I can't tell from the spec if that's required).

Third, be sure to state what browser you're using and what platform
if it's still not working.

Give it a try.
