There are two answers to this. (1) It is impossible. You can not scale backgrounds (although the CSS background-repeat property can alter the way they repeat). The key is to have backgrounds that tile sensibly, or which fade to a solid colour at the edges. (2) You can (warning, nasty hack incoming) fake a scaled background image by using a foreground image and absolutely positioning the rest of the content on top of it.
