Tiling background problem

Hi I am new to this forum and must say that I am impressed with the talented “actionscripters” in here.

I am currently using a technique shown in the tutorials section of Kirupa regarding a tiling background. I am building a full-screen flash site using the method in this tut: http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx2004/duplicatebackground.htm

The background is working all fine, however when I try to add content to the stage it always seems to render “behind” the background.

Does anyone have any tips on how to get content to render on a higher depth than the background?

Thankful for any responses:)
