You might want to:

1. Use something like "Web Developer Tools" on FF, or just the DOM
inspector in Opera (this is particularly good), to figure out why the
CSS is being overridden, and where.

2. Or add "!important" to the declaration to hopefully override a
subsequent style.

And to answer the general question.. "background-image" doesn't override
"background". When one specifies "background" it splits that into the
individual CSS properties. So when you use "background-image" you should
get an image over a white background, and if the image is alpha you'll
see that white.
