Announcement text: 
This newest package is a simple application of established packages 
graphicx, multido and AeB Web. The package takes a rectangular graphic 
and uses it to tile the background of the pages.

Download your favorite tiled background swatch from the Internet, convert 
it to an .eps or a .pdf format (depending if you use distiller---should 
work for users of Ghostscript as well---or pdftex), place that image in 
the same folder as your source document. Now, anywhere in your document, 
use the command \setTileBgGraphic to create your tiled background.

Other features Turn tiling on or off. Draft mode (an package option) 
used during the content development stage. Change the way the tiles 
are laid out, change from top-to-bottom to bottom-to-top.
