I guess the *best* way would be to have a background image for the body
(<body background='/foo.gif'>. If not you could have the table attribute
"height" set to 100%. This won't validate in xhtml and doesn't conform
to current views on the "semantic" web; removing formatting from
content, though. You can even use CSS to set norepeat and align
attributes, so there is a large degree of flexibility.
