For the image thins, you may take a look at the CSS property
"background-image" [1], which is well supported among browsers. For
the background color thereīs the property "background-color" [2] -
this is also used until the image is downloaded and/or if the browser
doesn't support the background image CSS property.

Sorry but I'm not familiar enough with Amaya's WYSIWYG features for
achieving the desired effect... I'm more a WYCIWYG (What You Code Is
What You Get) user! ;-D

Hope this helps,
