If a ‘background-image’ is specified, this property specifies the initial position on the Y-axis of the background image specified in the browser window if it is not continuously tiled in the element’s rendering box. A minimum value for this property indicates the upper side of the rendering box, and a maximum value is at the lower side. The X-axis component of the background position can be specified using the ‘background’, ‘background-position’ or ‘background-position-x’ properties.


body {

   background-repeat: repeat-x;
   background-position-y: bottom
