I propose to add 'expand' value to the list of existing values of the 
'background-repeat' attribute.

background-repeat: expand; is a simple yet powerful way of defining 
complex backgrounds and borders widely used in modern web design.
As an example it will cover almost all cases where rounded corners are 

background-repeat:expand; is defined here:


(Illustrations needed so format of web page is more suitable for this 
particular case)

Please consider this document as an official "background-repeat:expand" 

This way of defining background images is extremely simple to implement 
thus is a good chance that it will be accepted uniformly by all major UAs.
