No need to apologize Brad. I presume that battle was during my one year 
hiatus from www-style. I was to resub to the list in late 2009 to 
discover that my proposal to include a forward slash in a background 
shorthand to allow for a fallback background-color [1] was to be used 
instead as the means to include background-size in a background shorthand.

Thank you Brian for helping me with my CSS. Now reloaded with two 
background shorthands.


One for IE9 and another for IE10 which has prefixed (-ms-) gradients. 
You will get the concept of the demo and the affect that I after by 
resizing the width of the viewport. It somewhat like an animation affect 
without using CSS3 animation. Just wondering, is IE10 going to support 
CSS3 animation?
