Better still would be as follows.

Name: background-repeat
Value: repeat | repeat-x | repeat-y | no-repeat
       | <repetition> <repetition>? | inherit

<repetition> is either an <integer> or the keyword 'infinite'.

If one <repetition> is given, it specifies the maximum number of
horizontal repetitions and the maximum number of vertical
repetitions.  If two <repetition>s are given, the first
specifies the maximum number of horizontal repetitions and the
second specifies the maximum number of vertical repetitions.
