I've been trying to add a background image draft.png to Doxygen's mainpage, for example by adding to a custom Doxygen header.html.

It seem that this statment "background: white;" in the default doxygen.css is blocking the application of an image.

(Line 185 - 189)

body {
background: white;
color: black;
margin: 0;

In that background as white is the default, is there a need for this statement at all?

If the background: white; is deleted, it works as expected wtih the watermark.

Or can html experts suggest a way round this?

Someone more expert has suggested that

body {
background-color : white;
color: black;
margin: 0;

would ensure that the page is white without affecting the background-image.

Using background-color seems like a sensible thing to do.
I'll change this in the next subversion update.

I confirm that

body {
background-color: white;
color: black;
margin: 0;

is in doxygen.css 1.7.5

and appears to have the desired effect with a draft watermark.
