Hi there Tiggs,

Unfortunately you can't upload HTML to the background of your page.
It has to be an image file.

Tiggs, just in case (and for anyone else who comes across this post), these are the styles that allow you to change the background:
1. Tastelessly
2. Burlap
3. CleanSlate
4. BareNecessities
5. NoFrills
6. SqueakyClean

These styles can be found in the beginning of the style selection (click on 'Change Style' to see the style selection).

To change your background on your page, follow these steps:
1. Click on the "Properties" tab on the sidebar on the right.
2. At the bottom of the "Properties tab", under "Background image" click on the three dots (...) to choose or upload an image.
3. Click on "OK" and the image will be added as a background to your page.

Please note that the background will apply to that specific page and not to the whole site. To remove the background image, follow the same steps above and click on the 'None' button in the image selector dialog box that opens.
