    You can't adjust background images so that they stretch and shrink with the browser.

    I'm thinking you're talking about this:

    You could be talking about a background tile image that gets "tiled" across and
    down the page? For CSS ... background: url(myphoto.gif) repeat;

    You also can't really use max-width, as IE6 and below doesn't support it at all. Ditto for min-width. There are ways to hack around it, as usual, though (at least for min-width).

    Do you mean this image:
    http://images.apple.com/macosx/leopa...ro20070611.jpg

    That's their background image and it's huge, so yes, it fills the screen.

    With CSS, they probably set the body width to 1024.
