Through a study of since long time back already available info about
NS4x maybe?

Yes of course. The "alternative" method for NS4x was discovered some
years back and has been available as a full solution at http://css.nu
for just about as long.

Further if you have tried to run your CSS suggestion through a
"validation" sequence at http://www.htmlhelp.org/tools/csscheck/ you
would have got an automatic warning to the effect that the shorthand
property 'background' has a better support in to days cripple edge
browsers as compared to the specific properties you have tried to use.

Your source code to study is here...

  http://css.nu

...with the corresponding stylesheet to guide the background rendering
here...

  http://css.nu/includes/basic-rules.css

...or if you insist on using NS4x to read that style sheet, you may find
this link more useful...

  http://css.nu/includes/basic-rules.txt

...since NS4x has a real problem with understanding the IANA registered
MIME type of text/css too.

Look for the 'BODY.csspg' style rule and copy what you need from there,
problem solved...

Further questions on this topic are best posted to...
