Using pic. HTML table background info

Found out something i didnt know about tables and their background images.. below is a section i copied from http://www.workz.com/
At first glance, this is the obvious method. However, use it only if the vast majority of your visitors use Explorer (in a company Intranet, for example). In Netscape, your table display will be a mess. Yes, it will catch the eye - but for the wrong reason.

- Explorer displays the image as you expect - a single background picture. NOTE: Explorer will tile the image if the width and height of your table exceeds the size of the image.
- Netscape displays the image inside each separate field of the table. If your table definition includes 4 columns and 5 rows, then the same slice of your image will repeat 20 times (once in each field). if you need to find out how to fix the netscape problem : you can go here.but the reason i made this entry is due to this line as stated above :NOTE: Explorer will tile the image if the width and height of your table exceeds the size of the image.
