What about "background: 0([background-image] [background-position] ...
[background-xxx]) 1([background-image] [background-position] ...
[background-xxx]);"?  That could work, too.  I personally believe that
background(0): url(blah.jpg); background(1): url(blah.jpg); would be more
benificial and easier to understand, but the above might also be a strong
possibility.  I suppose it would depend on the author of that particular
style sheet.
