D. P. Story submitted the graphicxbox package. Summary description: Package provides graphics backgrounds for color and fcolor boxes License type: lppl Announcement text:
This is a short package that provides two new commands \graphicxbox and \fgraphicxbox, which are companion commands to \colorbox and \fcolorbox of color.dtx, by D. P. Carlisle. The \graphicxbox inserts a graphical image as a background rather than a background color, while \fgraphcxbox does the same thing, but also draws a colored frame around the box. The package is compatible with graphicxsp, for those who use Adobe Distiller as the PDF creator.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/graphicxbox . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/graphicxbox (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
