I was trying to attach a .gif background image I made in Illustrator/Fireworks, and used the WordPress dashboard/background options to insert the image. However, the image is covered by the white backgrounds on the page. I tried using firebug to specify "background-color: none;" to figure out how to remove the white styling, but to no avail. The css rule is added to the "body" element, doesn't this over-rule the other styling? If so, why does the white styling cover my background image?
background-position: center top;
