Here is the  solution which you requested. Your error was that you were 
simultaneously specifying the background color and the image so there was 
conflict in the selection for the background. So the solution for this is 
given below. Its working atleast on my system :

  <TITLE>Sagar's home page</TITLE>
  <STYLE TYPE="text/css">
    BODY {
      background: url(c:\sasfaq\ashweek.jpg) #a5a7c9;
	background-position: 50px 50px;
      color: black;
    <H1 style="color:red">Sagar's  Home Page</H1>
    <P style="color:blue">Test page testing the background image
