Outlook 2007/2010 displaying background images!

I am mac based and at the moment have been limited to just testing through Litmus to check email design rendering in Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 I have noticed over the last few days that background images have started to appear in my tests. Has anybody come across this and do background images actually now work in Outlook 2007 and 2010?

I know there is a work around but I haven't been using this in this instance.

Outlook 2007 and 2010 have always been able to display background images if you use the background="image.jpg" on the body tag. Background images anywhere else need the VML hack to show up.
