It seems that you have understood what the error message means. The rest
is actually external to validation.

You made some mistake. Please try asking for help on some CSS related
forum like news:comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets. Don't forget
to include the URL of your page into your question.

For some values of "real", yes - including the value that matters in
validation. Validation is objective; what you use it for is up to you.
(Besides, there are browsers that don't support the background attribute
in <td> elements but support background-image in CSS.)
