Remarks

If the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundAttachment property value for an element is set to "fixed", the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundClip property has no effect.

Starting in Windows Internet Explorer 9, the background of an element can have multiple layers. The number of layers is determined by the number of comma-separated values in the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundImage property. Each of the images is sized, positioned, and tiled according to the corresponding value in the other background properties (IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundAttachment, IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundClip, IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundOrigin, IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundPosition, IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundRepeat, and IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::backgroundSize). The first image in the list is the layer closest to the user, the next one is painted behind the first, and so on.
