If all you want is just a picture displayed, no text whatsoever, but using the image resizing CSS trick that your link shows, just put the below text into kwrite, or leafpad, or whatever [PLAIN TEXT editor --NO document formatting except for line breaks!!] and save it as a file with the extention ".html" e.g. "mylocalhomepic.html" or whatever. This will be the easiest way to get it to work on a local HDD.
------------ use the text below this line -----------------
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
<title>local home page picture</title>
background: url(pict1668.jpg) no-repeat center center fixed;
------------ use just the text above this line ----------------
1- you need to rename "pict1668.jpg" to match whatever file you want displayed.
2- The way this html document is set up, it needs to be in the SAME directory as the pic you want displayed.
Cute trick, BTW! I never used it before. Thanks!
