As you can learn from

  http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/global.html#edef-BODY

the background attribute is generally allowed on the <body> element.
Is is however not included in the HTML 4.01 Strict document type, you
have to use the Transitional document type. If you use XHTML 1.0
Transitional, make sure that you specify the attribute name in all
lower-case.
