Possible values


String that specifies one of the following values:


Default. The background is painted within (clipped to) the border box.


The background is painted within (clipped to) the padding box.


The background is painted within (clipped to) the content box.

This property has a default value of border-box. It is not inherited.


The background of a box can have multiple layers. The number of layers is determined by the number of comma-separated values in the background-image property. Each of the images is sized, positioned, and tiled according to the corresponding value in the other background properties (background-attachment, background-clip, background-origin, background-position, background-repeat, and background-size). The first image in the list is the layer closest to the user; the next one is painted behind the first, and so on.
