<title>How to set the a background-image as default position of a document</title><!-- Title of the HTML document -->
<style type="text/css">/* CSS style start*/
#xyz1 {

background: url(https://www.w3resource.com/images/w3resource-logo.png); /* Setting background image for the element with id "xyz1" */
background-repeat: no-repeat; /* Preventing the background image from repeating */
background-position: initial; /* Setting the background image position to its default value */
<div id="xyz1"><!-- Division element with id "xyz1" -->
<h2>Background image position</h2><!-- Heading inside the division element -->

  • This HTML document demonstrates setting a background image to its default position.
  • The CSS style block defines styling for an element with the id "xyz1".
  • The background image used in this example is the w3resource logo.
  • The background image is set not to repeat using background-repeat: no-repeat.
  • The background position is set to its default value using background-position: initial.
  • This means the background image will be positioned according to the default behavior, which is typically top left.
  • The HTML content within the div with id "xyz1" explains the concept of background-origin CSS property.
