    CSS background repeat help

    So I've been reading, watching, and listening to tutorials all day, but I've come to a place that I got stumped. I finished the HTML file and started the CSS file.

    So, I cut a jpeg from photoshop to repeat the background on the x axis.

    I have

    <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />

    in the HTML to refer to the css file style.css

    Here is my CSS code

    body { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; }

    .container {
    width: 800px;
    margin: 0 auto;

    body, div, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, ul, img {margin:0px; padding:0px; }

    url (images/background.jpg)

    #main {
    background-image:url(images/background.jpg) repeat-x;

    The Image/Background is not showing up.

    The image background.jpg in desktop->webdesignfolder->imagesfolder

    The index.html and style.css files are in the desktop->webdesignfolder

    Can someone help me out?

    have you validated your CSS?
