Full screen bg image that fits different sizes
I made this but in IE it doesn't work. By "doesnt work" I mean it scrolls and messes up all positionings.
Can anyone please help?

Add this to your head or stylesheet. The filter and ms-filter entries are the part that fix the "cover" method for IE.
You won't need any divs specific to the background image anymore, since this applies directly to the <html> tag.
background: url(content_bg.png) no-repeat center center fixed;
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='content_bg.png', sizingMethod='scale');
-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='content_bg.png', sizingMethod='scale')";

Stylesheet; otherwise you'll have to add it to your HTML for each and every page!

Right. I responded with both options because he was not using a separate stylesheet on his site, and I didn't want him to think he had to create a stylesheet in order for this fix to work. Either approach resolves his issue.
