Stretch Images

My management want a Microsoft style home page but with a fluid percentage
driven layout, which has a big image(s) where the content normally goes.
What is the best way of stretching that image so it fits neatly in different
browser sizes. I don't want to go down the javascript browser detection
route as we are aiming for WSC accessiblity (at a minimum the lowest
priority) and one of the guideline asks for the site to work without

Is there a stretchy fluid css solution in which the image will not pixelate.
I assume scaling down a big image will work better.

I should add that if you are going to do this to fit browser
widths, you will be getting into possibly unwisely big files. So,
with this in mind, there is another thing you should be aware of,
if you do it right, you can make a repeating horizontally bg
image. Now, of course, everything depends on design. With the
right "small width" pic that repeats, you can avoid having to put
stuff that repeats anyways into one big pic... think big sky,
railway tracks going on and on...
