Creates a polka dot background pattern.

  • Use background-color to set a black background.
  • Use background-image with two radial-gradient() values to create two dots.
  • Use background-size to specify the pattern's size. Use background-position to appropriately place the two gradients.
  • Note: The fixed height and width of the element is for demonstration purposes only.
