Content controls have to be top-level controls in a content page or a nested master page that references a master page.
"

</head>
<body background="BackGround.gif">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    </div>
        <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server">
        
            <p style="height: 319px; width: 718px">
                hello  welcome to asp.net
            </p>

hi Amitindurkar

masterpage.master
<BODY id="mpBodyTag" runat="server"/>

from codebehind
in master page codebehind

mpBodyTag.Attributes.Add("style","background: ... ");

in masterpage codebehind
public HtmlGenericControl BodyTag
{
get{return mpBodyTag;}
set{mpBodyTag= value;}
}

in child page
Master.BodyTag.Attributes.Add("style","background: ... ");

bye
