i don't want to use the workaround of putting the image in an absolutely 
positioned div because then, unless i put the rest of the page's content in 
another div, the image will cever the text.  it's not very complicated, just 
more so than it has to be.  and if i put the image in each file then every 
time i want to change it to a different image i would have to go back into 
each file and change them all, as opposed to changing a single 
background-image in a stylesheet.

also, it's the principle of it all.  the principality.  why use the new 
standards if you still have to do workarounds?

I don't recall seeing anyway to set the size of a background image. But
you could achieve what you want by putting the background image as a regular 
image into a div (so you could put it behind your other stuff) and 
stretching it as you would a normal image.
