Hello all,

Another newbie question using Visual Studio 2005,, c#.

I've got a smallish picture (pic1.jpg) that I want to use as a background for a web page (filling the entire screen with that image). I've created an App_LocalResources resource folder and placed pic1.jpg in it. In Properties, I set this image as the background and the following code is generated:

<body background="App_LocalResources/pic1.JPG">

In design mode, it works hunky-dory, but when I test it, the image is nowhere to be seen. I've tried different resource folders to no avail, so this is where I sit right now. Thanks.
