another option that readers can use is to override the wallpaper
with their browser options.  with netscape you can tell it to use
your own backround colors which overrides any wallpaper the page
may define.  i find that many of the textured backrounds used on 
pages with lots of text make it hard to read.  a very light color 
low contrast wallpaper, preferably one that has features that are much
larger than the font size is best.  wallpapers that are dark, have
lots of small features, or have high contrast make reading tough.
your 'fur' comes out ok on netscape 4beta in 1024x768x256 colors, 
but maybe it is worse in fewer colors or lower resolution.
