Andy,

Welcome to the forum!

I'm not sure I understand what your question is. The usa.htx template uses standard HTML coding. You can change the background color or use a background image by using standard HTML tags within the <body> tag itself.

Did you want to change the background color or do you want to use a background image?

Make sure you make the addition George mentioned on the .htx template.  Otherwise it won't stick.

What kind of code do I type in so I can get a different backround image or color?  Do I just type in the directory to the picture on my computer, or do I type in the actual color name?

I'm thinking that Andy needs to go buy himself a book on HTML coding to help him understand what is being said in these replies to him. Considering his initial question it's pretty obvious he has little, if any, HTML knowledge.

Andy - this reply is not meant to be a put-down or criticism of you. We really can't teach you HTML in a simple thread. You are going to have to learn it yourself and then ask some questions if you need help on specifics.

Just Google for HTML training. There are quite a few on-line sites that do just that.
