i was looking through the CSS specs for properties that set the width and 
height of the background image and was not able to find any.  am i missing 
something?

i am trying to build a site that has iframes with widths and heights 
relative to the window size.  when the window resizes so do the iframes and 
i want their background images to resize with them.  i don't want to place 
an absolutely positioned image on the pages and set the width and height of 
that because the other content on the pages is not absolutely positioned and 
is thus hidden behind the image (and it would be a real pain in the a** to 
have to go and change the image source in each file each time i want to use 
a different picture.  style should be separated from content so i don't have 
to).

once again i may be missing something.  either i am or, IMHO, the CSS specs 
are.  thanx in advance.
