Well, I just discovered that it does in fact work, but *only* when you
embed the stylesheet in the HTML document viz:
<style type="text/css"><!--
BODY { background: url(foo.gif) white; }

It doesn't work when linking in an external stylesheet viz:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="foo.css">
