The way to see this is to check the ID of the backgrounds.
To include the cards as having the same bg ID, use the Place command.
It is also useful to rename backgrounds so that you don't get confused
about which one is which.
Also note: you can have multiple backgrounds on a single card, each
having its own ID.
In the stack script you could do this discovery technique:
put the backgroundIDs of this stack & "=stk" into message box
put cr & the backgroundIDs of this card & "=cd" after message box
put cr & the number of groups of this card & "=gr" after message box
pass opencard -- in case another handler is waiting for this
Also note that 'group' and 'background' are synonymous if the
background behavior of a group it true.
You can use the Place and Remove as often as you like, since the
(backgrounds and groups) belong to the stack, not the card.
Hope this helps,
